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.
Although there are so many of them, it is always good to have more options for social icons as different styled ones can fit better to different websites.
Simple Icons is a set of 96 free social icons that cover almost all of the well-known social services (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Google+ and much more).
All the items are placed on a different background color that matches the related brand and all looking slick.
They come in 11 different sizes from 16*16px to 4096 to 4096px and in .PNG format and free to use in commercial projects.
When working on any mapping-related projects (like Google Maps integration), icons built specifically for them can be very handy.
Maki is a free set of “point of interest” icons that is perfect for web-based mapping interfaces.
The set includes 73 icons, comes in 3 sizes and both in PNG + SVG.
Besides standard markers, there are items for airport, bus station, police, restaurant, grocery and more.
Today, we are sharing a very nice freebie: a set of slick and minimal icons created by Geoffroy Amelot for WRD readers.
It is called Minimalist Icons and can be used in both personal or commercial projects.
There are 296 items in the set from social networks to actions, charts, devices, media controls and more.
All of them are in transparent PNG format, mono-colored and sized 12*12px which can be a good fit (mostly) for web applications.
Use them freely (no attributions required) and it is only not permitted to redistribute them.

IcoMoon is a free service that enables us to create custom icon sets and icon fonts using different sets.
The application includes most of the popular and free icon sets (that can be selected from its library), we can choose which ones to use and select any number of items from them.
Once the selection is over, it offers 2 types of downloads: image and font.
The image version comes as PNG with optional sprite image + the CSS rules and the font version in multiple formats (EOT, SVG, WOFF, TTF).
Also, besides the icons of other designers, IcoMoon has its own and free icon set which is pretty huge and slick.
