Under MacOS9 and in the Classic Environment of OSX, copying the 
Chime-Files from the Plug-In folder of Netscape 4.x to the 
Plug-in-Folder of s newer Netscape- or Mozilla Versions will give you a 
Chime Plugin that works OK in these Browsers for PDB files, but crashes 
when you try to open a MOL file (e.g. if you need to show the locations 
of double bonds in a small molecule.  Sites that test for the type of 
Browser used (including the Protein Explorer Site) will not let you 
access with such a patched Chime installation
