I know this is not much of a "problem", neither this is of relevance for anything, but it is somewhat annoying to see that the "class" of .md files in Finder appear as "com.brettterpstra.marked.plain-text" instead of something nicer, like "Markdown File" or else. It looks half-baked or cheap.

Attached is a screenshot, in case the direct translation from spanish to english doesn't happen to be "class" :)

    Seconding this suggestion. It annoyed me enough that I searched for a solution and landed on this issue.

    I love Marked, but the way it causes the "Kind" of .md files to display caused me to momentarily reconsider whether it should be the default app for this filetype.
