Sounded promising, but the design itself put me off instantly.

It embodies everything that is wrong with modern web.

What's wrong with the design?

Each app needs to show the name of the app. I use vs code every day and didn't recognize that logo off the top of my head. I had to click back and forth on each logo for the ones I don't use. I get the gist though, if you're quickly looking for shortcuts presumably you know what the logo looks like.

I agree with this. I was hovering on a button and then checking the link string in the lower left of the browser to figure out which icon was what.

IFTTT is a nice example of a button/icon heavy design that also includes simple text descriptions.

Also, personally I would like to see vim on there.

I don’t exactly agree with the initial comment, but an accessibility audit would find a few blunders (like mint green text on a white background, which is very difficult to read)

It would be easier to say what's good about it.

A lot easier.
