This week’s Web Tool of the Week is a icon database I found recently which is an absolute goldmine for us web designers who often want to use high quality icons in their websites. Launched in 2007, IconFinder provides high quality and mostly free to use icons in a very easy and efficient way. The site features a really good search engine which allows you to customize how to display the results and even change the icons background to transparent if you wish. For instance, say you searched for a “contact” icon, this is what the results will look like: Once you pick one, you have several options to save the one that fits your requirements:
SVG (or Scalable Vector Graphics) is an XML-based file format that enables developers and designers to create high quality, dynamic graphics and graphical applications with a great level of precision. All modern browsers support rendering SVG: however, for older browsers like IE6, 7 and 8 without native support, you can fall back on polyfills such as SVG Web that use Flash for rendering content. This enables you to easily target the majority of users online without worrying about compatibility issues.
