Michromeformats

What is it?

It displays any microformats on the page and supports hCard, hCalendar, hReview, hReview-aggregate and hRecipe.

hCards and hCalendars can be exported to your computer so you can add contacts to an address book or calendar. Or, connect to your Google account and import contacts to your Google Contacts or Google Calendar.

Inspiration came from Remy Sharp’s awesome Microformats Bookmarklet, which got its inspiration from Jon Hick’s proposed Safari plugin.

What are microformats?

Designed for humans first and machines second, microformats are a set of simple, open data formats built upon existing and widely adopted standards. Learn more about microformats

Icons

Some of the icons come from Matthias Pfefferle’s Microformat icon set. This extension wouldn’t be pretty without these awesome little icons. The recipe icon comes from the MealKeeper set which can be found at deviantart.com
