20 More Sets of Free Icon Fonts

Last year we published our very popular post 30 Free Icon Font Sets, and today we are back with another 20 fantastic free sets for you.

Icon fonts do have their pitfalls and there are certain things you should consider before using them. To ensure that your icons always load and have reliable fallbacks for browsers that don’t support @fontface, you should take a look at the guidelines set-out by the Filament Group, Bulletproof Accessible Icon Fonts.

And just like they have their pitfalls, they also have their downsides. Ian Feather has recently discussed his reasons for switching from an icon font to SVG, and CSS Tricks have outlined some considerations when choosing between an icon font system or SVG. Both clearly favouring SVG.

As a counter-argument, Pictonic say that icon fonts are 10% faster than SVG.

All of these icon sets are from 2014, you might like to check out the 2013 edition or the 2012 edition.
