Free Icon Libraries

Posted in General Web, HTML & CSS on February 4th, 2010 by phoenixdigital

It is very frustrating searching the net for a range of free icons as most that claim to be free are just pointers to crappy icons which then offer another range of paid ones as well. While I think people should be paid for icon design I think it makes it hard to find icons for a small project or admin screen.

Here are some links to some known FREE icon libraries
