I like that, because I think it's important that those are visible.

I don't like the idea of removing favorites which we had for a very long
time. It forces users to change their workflow, and there is no easy way
for them to change it back, because we don't have a persistence preset
for the favorite apps. This seems like bad UX.

IMO, if we want to remove apps from the favorites list, we should also
support to customize it.
