[Chimera-users] Showing actual electrostatic potential on surface

That's a nice idea. I've put a script surfvalues.py on the Chimera
Python scripts web page to do that.
If you color a surface with an electrostatic potential using the Surface
Color dialog (e.g. an APBS potential) then as you move the mouse over
the surface the potential values used in the coloring will be shown. By
default the Surface Color dialog samples the potential 1.4 Angstroms
from the surface so that is the value reported, not the value exactly at
the surface point under the mouse. This would be a nice feature to
include in Chimera. But I haven't worked out the details -- like how to
turn this mouse mode off.
