User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.1; en; rv:1.9.2.12) Gecko/20101026 Firefox/3.6.12
Build Identifier: Contacts in the Browser 0.4

The "Contacts in the Browser" extension is very cool and I can't wait to see what comes out of it. One thing I did notice is that it is extremely easy to import contacts. So, why isn't Thunderbird like this?? Right now I have to use the Zindus extension to get my Google Contacts synced with Thunderbird because I need to access my contacts from multiple devices.

Why not integrate the Contacts extension with the next version of Thunderbird? That way people who need to access their contacts on multiple devices (home computer, phone, ipod touch, etc.) can do so easily simply by moving their address book to Google Contacts and setting it up with Thunderbird. In Firefox (with Contacts), all it takes is a single click and I'm done. In Thunderbird, it takes a separate extension and a headache.

Let's fix this.

Thanks,
Grant
