Is there such a thing as a "standard" contacts book?

If you have your contacts in Google and want to share them with Thunderbird
email clients you might look at Zindus http://www.zindus.com/ (Thunderbird

not perfect but it works pretty well, whereas I kept running into
configuration issues trying to get gcaldaemon to work at all.
