This is an index page pointing to resources about Jmol and JSmol.



Jmol and JSmol mean pretty much the same thing. Jmol is the original name of the software, meaning "Java molecular". After a version was developed that does not require Java (it runs in web browsers' HTML5/Javascript) the name JSmol[1] was added, meaning "JavaScript molecular".
