Microformats

August 2, 2007

Google Maps Official Blog posted about adding microformats to Google maps today. It’s not often that we get to say we did it before Google, but we did, we did! 🙂 Microformats have been built into Zenbu since day 1. No reason not to enable people to export the data as easily as possible with our open license.

Microformats are a way of telling your browser exactly which parts of the page are the contact details – name, address, phone, etc. That way plugins like Tails for Firefox can do fancy things with those contacts like export them to your address book in one click. Nifty.
