Facebook Email Links

In the past, I have commented on the Facebook policy of showing email addresses as graphics rather than text. They sent a cease-and-desist to Chris Finke about his addon to convert them back to proper mailto: links.

I am pleased to announce that Facebook have relented! A Facebook spokesman said:

Showing email addresses in plain text makes it easier for people to use
the information to connect with their friends.

In the spirit of making it even easier for people to use the information to connect with their friends, I’d like to plug Chris Finke’s recently-released “Facebook Email Links” Firefox addon, which does the same thing as the old one, but without the need for OCR. Install it, and you will be able to email your Facebook friends using standards-based email with a single click.
