Google has enabled Google Contacts as a standalone app for Gmail users at http://www.google.com/contacts

Its only missing the favicon for this URL (standalone version).

Cool, the URL is far easier to remember than http://mail.google.com/mail/contacts/ui/ContactManager which has been available for long time.

Matt Cutts just twittered about this: http://www.google.com/contacts
Useful if you store phone numbers or if you need information faster...

I could've sworn I'd seen this posted somewhere else recently, otherwise I would have done so when I spotted it on Tuesday after noticing the "contacts" service had gone live.

Aha... here it was on GoogleWatchBlog.de:

This was also just announced on the Google Apps update alert blog/feed.

But what I don't get is how this:

is any different to this:
