Hi Boaz,
Long before we decided to name the next-generation package ChimeraX, we had used the .chimerax filename suffix for Chimera web data files.  We decided it was obscure enough not to cause too much confusion going forward…

ChimeraX does not use “.chimerax” suffix files at present; suffix .cxc is used for ChimeraX command files and .cxs for ChimeraX session files.
