Microformats are a way of marking up data so it's readable by machines. E.g., <span class="zipcode"></span> around a zipcode.

Operator parses microformats in a page and exposes them through Firefox's UI. With support for OpenStreetMap, if you see an address in a page, rather than having to copy and paste it, you can hit a menu option in Operator and have it open in OSM. Operator already does this for Google Maps.

Vincent — please get this into the upstream version!
