List of 41 Beautiful & Free Icon Fonts

You have probably already used some icon fonts on one of your websites.

But did you know there are so many beautiful free icon fonts that you could use?

This is probably the most comprehensive list of icon fonts on the planet. 

And whether you are a developer, designer or web enthusiast, you’ll surely love it.

Why icon fonts?

Icons are pictograms that help our websites' readers easily navigate through the blocks of the text and different elements on the web page.

Back in the days, there were no other options, than to use pictures for our icons, which made all the work with the icons too complicated.

But you know what?

Not anymore.

Since we can nowadays easily embed our fonts in the web page, the work with the icons while developing or designing has become much more fun.

(See cross-browser compatibility of embedding icon fonts.)

Curated 41 free icon fonts

I suppose that you already know something about icon fonts, so enough of theory

As there are not many resources on icon fonts as a whole, I tried last week to put together my selection of the best, most useful and free icon fonts in 2016.

And today I would like to present you the list of 41 great and FREE icon fonts, the best I could find.

As the choice of the icons is often just a matter of your personal preference, I have divided them into Multi-purpose icon fonts and Special icon fonts only. In the latter you will find icon fonts designed specifically for map purposes, weather icons and pictograms, or social networks' icons only.
