This is nothing short of excellent news and I will take a closer look and
report back in time for our next conference call.

On initial review there are significant similarities in both API and
implied UI.

I'd really like to engage with Mozilla on all aspects of this...especially
the use of Portable Contacts as we've discussed this many times in this
group but are yet to reach concensus.

Anyway, awesome stuff and I'm sure we'll be hearing more about this in the
coming weeks.

A Mozilla Labs project announces they have implemented a Contacts API in
an add-on:

They mention our work, although I can't tell for sure they have
implemented some version of our API or something else.

The authorization screenshot is really quite interesting given our
discussions on the topic:

Maybe some of our Mozillians participants could give more details on
this?
