Two new programs have been developed for searching the Cambridge Structural Database (CSD) and visualizing database entries: ConQuest and Mercury. The former is a new search interface to the CSD, the latter is a high-performance crystal-structure visualizer with extensive facilities for exploring networks of intermolecular contacts. Particular emphasis has been placed on making the programs as intuitive as possible. Both ConQuest and Mercury run under Windows and various types of Unix, including Linux.
