Minimalistic but massively web enabled address book for contact management running completely in browser. Features: XML based, small, lightweight, contact tagging, geo mapping, web accounts, etc.
Export functionality: vCard download, QR code generator (offline), Embedded Microformats (hCard 1.0, XFN). How it works: Your addressbook (XML file) is transformed in your web browser (via XSLT) to a full-featured web application (HTML). Requirements: web browser, no server or plugin needed (but easy hosting as static website also possible)

    This a great project! It is exactly the kind of address book I was looking for: simple but with all features, light and can be used offline. It would be even better if someone could build a simple front-end to introduce or manage contacts. It's a pity the workaround needed to work in Chrome, but I believe there is nothing one could do about that.
