Looking for web icons of the free variety? Here is a list of the best ones that I have found. If you have others worthy to of being included in this “best of” list, leave a comment and I’ll keep the list updated. And now, the icons:
Best Free Web Icons Ever:
- The Silk icon collection may be the most popular ever…period. With over 1,000 icons. They are beautiful. This may be all you need:
- The Sweetie collection also rocks. 200+ icons under the CC-Attribution ShareAlike license:
- Utombox has some great 3-d icons of some the Web 2.0 sites you probably use in your blog (Technorati, etc). They’ve got several WordPress themes as well:
- For a solid set of all-purpose icons, try the Drunkey-love collection. 100+ icons in PNG format:
- Ganato Design sends out icon love with a bunch of beautiful 3-d icons in PSD format. So it will require you to do a little Photoshopping to save them in your favorite format. But as you’ll see, they ROCK!
- [Added] Miniajax offers up a nice collection icons of Web 2.0 social media sites. They come in PNG & PSD giving you a lot of control.
A special shout out to Jon Lee for turning me on to Ganato. Jon lists a couple of other sites here.
