| style="vertical-align:top;"| '''Jmol''' is an open-source viewer for three-dimensional chemical structures, with features for chemicals, crystals, materials and biomolecules.
| '''JSmol''' is a fully functional implementation of Jmol that does not require Java and runs in any modern (HTML5) web browser. That includes Firefox, Chrome, Opera, MSIE(9+), and Safari on Apple MacOS and iOS (iPad and iPhone). Performance may be a little slower than Java, but it is amazingly fast for JavaScript.

See <span style="font-size:1.6em;">[[JSmol]]</span> for more details.
| colspan="2" | Features include reading a variety of file types, including PyMOL session files and output from quantum chemistry programs, file writing (including JPG, PNG, PNGJ (PNG+ZIP), and ZIP formats), and animation of multi-frame files and computed normal modes from quantum programs, surfaces, translucency, full Jmol [{{StOlaf}}docs scripting], and localization in 40+ languages.

The recommended way to cite Jmol is:
:''Jmol: an open-source Java viewer for chemical structures in 3D. http://www.jmol.org/''
:''JSmol: an open-source HTML5 viewer for chemical structures in 3D. http://wiki.jmol.org/index.php/JSmol''
Remember to always use uppercase 'J', uppercase 'S', lowercase 'mol' ([http://jmol.sourceforge.net/faqs/index.en.html#How%20do%20you%20write%20Jmol? explanation]).
If you prefer, a list of articles that describe Jmol can be found in the [[Literature | Jmol Literature]] section.
