Font Awesome is Awesome

Font Awesome is an open source free font + css that is the Webdings of 2013.  The font contains countless vector based icons that can be used in a variety of applications.  Kudos to Dave Gandy (@byscuits) for coming up with such as clever packaging and sharing it with the rest of us.  There are several reasons why this is truly Awesome:

  1. You don’t need to create and include tons of images with your site
  2. Small sizes mean fast download
  3. You can leverage the full power of CSS
  4. Ridiculously easy to integrate
  5. Cross browser support for free
  6. Standard package will be on CDN for better performance

I look forward to incorporating this simple but Awesome “Font” into my next project.
