Export or Backup Your Gmail Contacts List with Just a Few Clicks

I noticed a small addition to the Gmail What’s New page in the past day or so that points out that it’s now VERY easy to export your Gmail contacts list offline (it’s always good to have a backup) or to use with another email reader. Simply login to your Gmail account, click your “Contacts” list (left column) and then look for the “Export” link located on the right side of the page. Your contact list is made available as a .CSV file. Additional instructions and info can be found here.
