Jmol is a Java molecular viewer for three-dimensional chemical structures. Features include reading a variety of file types and output from quantum chemistry programs, and animation of multi-frame files and computed normal modes from quantum programs. It is free and open source. There a is a standalone application and a development tool kit that can be integrated into other Java applications. The most notable feature is an applet that can be integrated into web pages to display molecules in a variety of ways. For example, molecules can be displayed as "ball and stick" models, "space filling models", etc. This feature of Jmol has largely replaced the plugin Chime, partly because there is no need to install a plugin, just have Java installed, and partly because Chime is no longer supported by some browsers. It supports a wide range of molecular file formats.
