I guess the ones I use the most are the quick reference panels from "Rijk's panelizer". Been having those as panels for a very long time now (15 years or more?) Quick access to CSS/HTML/JS/HTTP documentation is very useful.
A bit outdated but good enough for my uses. My biggest worry is they will disappear soon as they seem to not be maintained so I've downloaded what I can to use locally.
Also note the text:
Opera 15 will not support panels, and neither do Chrome, Safari or IE
Others I use include the old panels from "T’N’T Luoma", available on the Archive (but also saved locally)
All Hail the Internet Archive!
Among others i Have in the Web Panel
I've used several different web panels over the years, but the one constant that's currently there on all my installations is Slack. Having it in a web panel means I can access it easily without having to switch tab or application, while it can still send desktop notifications to alert me of new messages.
I use a web panel for translations. It's pretty much the only one I use, so I guess it must be my "favorite."

I have many news websites set up as web panels, so there is no space left in the web panel bar.
Therefore it would be very good if you could create folders on the Web Panel toolbar:

I use Instagram only, because now I can not close opened panels. Juts add "x" button or limit for the open panels.

I use a web panel to keep the last page of my favourite readings, for instance http://www.bvh.univ-tours.fr/Consult/consult.asp?numtable=B360446201_C899&numfiche=633&mode=1&ecran=0&index=221
Then I can return to it easily, with a right click and open in a new tab.
By the way, would it be possible to open directly in a new tab, with ctrl + click for example ?
[EDIT] It works by clicking on the mouse wheel
I've started using WaniKani recently. I keep it in a web panel so I can quickly check when my reviews are ready.
I do not use the panel much, but the most useful feature is the Downloads. It opens up every time I download something, and I find that helpful.

helyesiras.mta.hu is a Hungarian site to check grammar. I use it from the sidebar.
I also use it as an ebook reader for pdf-s.

I've never really paid any attention to panels, so I'm actually still not exactly sure what they even are! I guess I use V's built-in download panel occasionally, if I'm downloading something massive like a new distro's ISO from a slow site, and want to check its progress.
I presume the panels being referred to here are some sort of web service things? Is it basically an extra set of bookmarks, except each "bookmarked" page is already open in memory/logged-in?
I don't know how useful I'd actually find this functionality, as I sign out of each service I use the moment my attention goes away from it, and I clear all history, cache and cookies every time I close the browser (or sometimes even every time I log out of something). I've been doing this since I've been aware of tracking and other cruft on the web (so probably since sometime between Spyglass Mosaic and Internet Explorer 3, lol). People always used to say, "why would you do that? you're not watching porn are you?" - how times change! In short, I can't think of a worse nightmare than being signed into something like Facebook, Amazon or GMail, and then browsing the general wider web! That is, unless these panels are somehow individually isolated from the entire rest of the browser, and therefore can't see any history or cookies other than their own?
@jamesbeardmore Web Panels allow you to put websites (any website) in a side-panel, similar to the Downloads panel. This means that you can easily access those websites without having to navigate away from the tab you currently have open (by opening a new tab, changing the address, etc.). "Floating web panels" open over the current website (on the side still, of course) so it's not disturbed, and non-floating panels open side-by-side with your normal tab (similar to tab-tiling, but the web panel is open even if you switch tabs without you having to re-tile anything).
I use Slack in a web panel, which means that I can, at any time, open Slack to send or respond to messages without having to leave what I'm doing. And when I've sent my message I can just close the panel to get it out of the way, and it will stay in-memory (like a background tab) so next time I open it I'll be able to read/write messages immediately.
Another example, which doesn't require any log-ins, is a dictionary. I used to have Merriam-Webster as a web panel, so whenever I wanted to look up a new word I could do it smoothly without leaving the text I was reading.
The web panels are not isolated from the rest of the browser (but extensions don't work in them). If you log in to Facebook in a tab and then add Facebook as a web panel, that web panel will also be signed in (and when you sign out from the tab, the panel is also signed out). However, as mentioned above you can put any website in them, including those where you don't need any logins.
