TinyMCE is an open source WYSIWYG editor. The toolbar includes dropdown menus that are reminiscent of desktop applications. This could make it a front-runner choice for users who are not necessarily tech-savvy.
CKEditor is another online WYSIWYG editor that can be plugged into any web project. Although it doesn't include the dropdown menus that TinyMCE does, it is still very user-friendly. The "Paste from Word" feature could make it the "go to" editor for users in corporate world.
This is the full-featured version of CKEditor. It provides a lot more options on the toolbar. Handy if the standard toolbar is not enough.
This is a classic version of CKEditor. CKEditor 3.4 to be precise. This may be of interest if you have any browser compatibility issues with the more modern editors.
