Jmol is an open-source molecule viewer and editor. It was originally intended to be a fully functional replacement for XMol, but along the way, we've tried to improve some parts of the XMol interface that we found annoying. Jmol is written in Java using the Swing GUI components. After we duplicate the functionality of XMol, we will be adding features of particular interest to the chemical community, including molecule editing, simple force-field based minimizations, molecular dynamics (microcanonical ensemble), and Langevin dynamics (canonical ensemble).
