Sometimes we find an icon, love its design but the colors don’t fit to the project.

With Icons DB, a free and growing set of flat icons, that is not possible as we can get all the items in any color we prefer.

The set includes 1800+ items in multiple formats (ICO, PNG, JPG, GIF) and 8 sizes from 16*16px to 512*512px.

There are many icons which can fit very well to web apps and almost each item has multiple variations that can satisfy each taste.

Only drawback is the inability to download the whole set as they are only offered one-by-one.

X-Icon Editor is an HTML5 application, using <canvas> tag,  that allows you to create high resolution icons.

It generates the icons in .ICO format with 4 different resolutions embedded: 64×64, 32×32, 24×24 and 16×16.

This makes it a perfect fit for IE9 as the browser uses multiple-sized favicons in different screens (address bar, tab page, site mode).

There are tools like brush, pencil, text or shapes for drawing the icon. Also, it is possible to import any image and edit it.
