Feature request: Adware tag

#1 Post by lintalist » Sun Jan 29, 2017 1:00 pm

We have the < updated ] and < new ] tags after the program name and version number.

As some programs change to adware over time usually a note is added in the description highlighting it is adware but you still have to read/see it.

I wonder if a new tag < adware ] which would be shown on the same line as name + version and in combination with 'updated' and 'new' - would be useful to make sure you can't miss it.

µTorrent is a good example I think - note is in the text but a tag would jump out:

Should be a moderately simple feature to implement. I will let you guys know once it's done.

Thanks for the suggestion!
