ICC's still the best in the biz today. There's more competition around but for the most serious, competitive chess on the most stable server with the best lag and disconnect protection - Your only real option is ICC.
ChessTempo has a decent live server up now but it's nothing compared to ICC.
Lichess is broken now that they implemented the pools the way they did. Specifically a site for casuals.
PlayChess is your only other legitimate option for quality online chess other than ICC. Fritz 15 + PlayChess = Pretty Great, actually.
FIDE Online Arena: The only way to put up real FIDE numbers without going to a live tournament in a major city. It works well, too.
Yup, i like chess.com the best
