Is there a better contacts viewer?

I have my contacts from my ipod synced to my computer. I use them A LOT on my ipod. Mostly for phone numbers/e-mails/skype/aim...actually for just about everything

Is there a better way to view your contacts rather then opening the ".contact" file...that's a horribly ugly UI. Also it seems like that is made for editing. What about viewing?

I just use the contacts viewer with the preview pane enabled. I dont know of anything else for viewing contact files.

Your welcome! In Vista it was a bit of a headache, but in 7 you have the button on the toolbar to enable/disbale the preview pane whcih make things easier.
