Chime shows molecules like RasMol, but unlike RasMol, Chime shows molecules inside a web page. Chime shows only the molecules written into the web page by its author. Chime is free, and runs on Windows or Macintosh/PPC computers (also Silicon Graphics). Once you have installed Chime, you can view DNA, protein secondary structure, hemoglobin, antibody, etc. directly on web pages.
You can download RasMol here and get lots of molecules to look at. RasMol is easy to install, and, if you know a little basic biochemistry, learning how to use it is easy and fun. Downloading and installing Chime is easy (but see this trick for the Macintosh.) Then you can look at DNA and proteins right in your web browser.
