Twitter and Facebook contacts on my Thunderbird

Categories Mozilla

Look what I’ve got:


I can see all my Facebook and Twitter contacts from my Thunderbird Addressbook already. This is kinda cool isn’t it.

I am using gContactSync experimental functions to do that.

    Nifty. :)

    I don’t know if you’re the person to mention it to, but these screenshots made me think: Why don’t we pull out all the “http://”s from website links?
    We could do the same think Firefox does for https.

    I don’t know why people want to remove http everywhere.
    If there’s an http sitting around somewhere then I know “this is supposed to be a link”. If there’s just a blue underlined text then this could be anything (c.f. the blue, underlined text used to delete cookies on the privacy pane of Fx). So if there’s no http then I need to have a closer look to decide which means it’s distracting me when scanning something.

    @Benedikt: I agree with you completely. Besides harming basic visibility of links, removing the “http://” harms the basic knowledge of people new to the web. If, for example, they copy/paste a link and “http” is magically there, they might get confused.
