You might think that if you used Safari to request a resource, like oh, let’s say a vCard, and that resource was sent with a mime-type of text/x-vcard that maybe the resource would open in Address Book.

You might think that, but you’d probably be wrong…

Whether this is due to text/x-vcard not being an official mime type, and Apple following the rules, or a missed opportunity, I’ll leave that up to you.

I guess we should just be glad Safari doesn’t try to guess the mime-type based on the file extension, like a certain other browser with a big blue ‘e’ on it does…

Besides, I can’t get Address Book to communicate to our LDAP server (though Mozilla does) so I’m going home…
