29 Free Stunning Web Icons Sets To Enhance Your Web Design

An icon is a small picture used on a screen to represent some action or content. Icons can be used alone or with words. By themselves, icons can save space. A very visual icon can often say more in a few pixels than even a few words can. Icons retain some advantages over textual links. They are often easier for users to recognize than words.

As the Web grows, some icons will certainly become commonplace and their meaning fairly well understood. Most of these icons will probably owe some heritage to desktop applications, but some may be new. The particular style for the icon is inconsequential. Consider the shape to be the primary focus of the icon.
