mintMenu search tags

Postby Tithis » Sun Apr 27, 2008 12:47 am

As I've begun to install more apps I've been using the search function of the mintMenu more often. It works well but not I think it would become more useful with the addition of tags. The searches seem to look at the name and description of items, this is all well and good but those items do not provide all the information you may want. For example typing in "video" does not give a result of VLC even though its a video player . Typing "internet" doesn't give any result for Firefox either. Adding a search tag's would make the search function more useful and give more relevant results.

Don't blame me for my bad english. This is not my native language.

Are the decisions that you make, when you have no time to make them, that define who you are.
