My group is using MapTool. Is it as pretty as the others? Not really, no. Does it have all this built-in functionality, like rule-sets and such, where all you have to do is set up a specific character, and a lot of the functions are already there? Nope. Does it allow me to do absolutely anything I want, and not limit me to specific things? Oh yeah!
I've tried out all the different VTTs out there, after using MapTool, and I have to say, all the others are lacking something. Yeah, they may have nicer looking interfaces, they may have some built in functionality, compatibility with other systems (like integration with Hero Lab), but all-in-all, I love that with MapTool I can program a button to do anything I want it to do, only limited by my imagination (and macro-coding ability!)
I can definitely see the draw of other VTTs, and when new ones come out, I'm all over them, seeing if they'll work for me, but in my opinion, MapTool is definitely one of the better ones.
