I think that when it comes to comparing molecular structures it would be more
helpful to have an "align structures" option to see both (or more) structures
aligned in the same applet rather than having each structure in its own. There are fast
algorithms to do this and it shouldn't be hard to implement... just my 2 cents.
(Now that I think of it, I might ask this as a request for future versions ;)

Just want to add to this discussion that I also found this a useful
feature in Chime (and was always sad that it did not work on Mac).
Mouse synch greatly enhances the user's ability to compare related
structures- for example, when looking at protein conservation.

I would welcome mouse synch implementation in Jmol, even if the
command was limited to synching all applets vs. synching none. (In
fact there was considerable discussion of synching mouse gestures
years ago in Jmol, and I was involved in that. But the issue died at
that time.)
