Most microformat specifications have an "implementations" section, e.g.:
In addition, some microformat specifications have separate implementation pages:
Companies / Organizations / Authors / Services
- BlogMatrix - user information marked as hCard, tag directories in xFolk RC1/rel="tag", enclosures are marked as rel="enclosure".

- Microformats Search. Search for contacts(hCard), events(hCalendar), or reviews(hReview) published on blogs and other web sites.
- Technorati supports and handles both Vote Links and rel="nofollow" for indicating whether a link should have any/positive/negative weighting towards the destination.
- Technorati Tags index - an index of blog posts tagged with the rel="tag" open tagging standard.
- hCard creator - contributed to microformats.org as open source. This is a very simple, yet illustrative, open source user interface / form / script which creates an hCard in real-time as you type in a set of contact information.
- hCalendar creator - contributed to microformats.org as open source. Similar, but for hCalendar.
- hReview creator - contributed to microformats.org as open source. Similar, but for hReview.
- iChat buddy list to hCards - open source AppleScript to automatically convert one's buddy list in the MacOSX iChat AIM client into a valid XHTML 1.0 Strict list of hCards.
- Technorati publishes its own contact information as hCards: About page lists their Media Contact, and their Press page also lists their Press Contact, both as inline hCards.
- Upcoming.org - hCalendar support in events listings and individual events.
University of Bath
- Web Essentials - supports hCard and hCalendar, e.g. in their list of presenters and program schedule.
- WordPress supports XFN blogrolls through a very nice built-in user interface. (cf. XFN Implementations)
- Yahoo Creative Commons Search - supports rel="license" specifically to search for Creative Commons licensed content.
brian suda has created several XSLT files to extract microformats from HTML. From that the X2V webservice/favelet emerged. The XSLT and favelet extracts hCard and to produces .vcf (vCard) files and hCalendar to produce .ics (iCal) files. Also in the labs is a universal XMDP validator and a site-wide search spider that recognizes 'no-follow', 'license' and other microformats so they can be used in a more semantic way when displaying search results.
- rfc2629.xslt now attempts to generate hCard information (RFC2629 is an XML format for authoring RFCs and Internet Drafts, see example document)
- Andy Hume uses the hcard format to mark-up the names and URLs of commentors on his blog.
- JSCalendar parses hCalendar and produces a displayable HTML table/CSS-based calendar.
