[MO] Best Algebraic Geometry text book? (other than Hartshorne)


I think (almost) everyone agrees that Hartshorne’s Algebraic Geometry is still the best.
Then what might be the 2nd best? It can be a book, preprint, online lecture note, webpage, etc.

One suggestion per answer please. Also, please include an explanation of why you like the book, or what makes it unique or useful.
