Is there a simple way to filter only contacts that are not currently in the "My Contacts" section, and only appear in "All Contacts"?
I usually get tons of clutter in there, and I like to remove unneeded entries, but so far have only been able to go over them one by one, and when the "Move to My Contacts" button becomes enabled, I know this is a contact I may safely delete (Or permanently keep).

Is there a better way to do this, using the simple web interface?

The new Google Contacts (in Gmail, not the stand alone page, for now), has the "Other Contacts" section which contains exactly those that were automatically added.
