Contact lists in Firefox

Just got an interesting post via the Portable Contacts mailing list -- Mozilla Labs has a new, pre-alpha plugin for Firefox, that will import your contacts from social networks and let you use them inside the browser. It's just a baby step, but hints at the happy day when we might be able to manage contact lists more centrally, reducing the hassle of having to manage so much duplication across networks.

(Consider that I have large contact lists on LJ, Twitter, Facebook and Google. Well over half of those lists are the same people, and I largely want to group them the same ways. Nowadays, I have to manage each one separately. I would love to be able to centralize that task. There are a lot of hurdles before that's possible, but every step in the right direction is a positive one in my book...)
