CardDAV Browser

CardDAV Browser gives you a quick and easy way to connect to a CardDAV server and view vCard details.

Once installed the menu entry will appear under the "Tools" menu. If you are using Firefox and the main menu bar is hidden then the entry can be found under "Developer" in the "burger stack" menu.

You can copy any text or number entry when viewing a vCard by right-clicking on that entry.
