Extract the zip file to a folder [no install] and you are ready to go.
From the website:
"The Virtual Laboratory allows students to select from hundreds of standard reagents and manipulate them in a manner that resembles that of a real lab. It allows students to design and perform diverse experiments in acid-base chemistry, thermochemistry, solubility, and redox chemistry."
The 'hundreds of standard reagents' actually amounts to 75 differing reagents by my count [unless we can add more reagents somehow I haven't found how to yet though]
With this students can simulate chemical experiments that they might not be able to otherwise given modern H&S rules.
See attached screen shot for an idea of how things look when it is running [not an attempt at representing a real experiment!]
Other simulation software is also present on the website.

Today I have downloaded 7 applets from this website including simulations for:
Faraday's Electromagnetic Lab
The Photoelectric Effect
No feedback from staff yet but if they don't like them I can just delete them as there is no setup [running them from a central location: Share on one of my servers]

science use a lot of out of date software in our school imo.
