Better FetLife

The Better FetLife user script enhaces various features of FetLife.com pages. Current features include:

  • Makes FetLife user profile pages exportable to your favorite contact management application, such as Mac OS X's native Address Book, Google Contacts, or Yahoo! Contacts.
  • Makes FetLife event pages exportable to your favorite calendaring application such as iCal, Google Calendar, or Yahoo! Calendar in one click.

To enable these export features, install the Operator Add-On for Firefox or the Microformats Extension for Google Chrome.
