CSS3 allows frontend developers to animate subjects without any JavaScript whatsoever. SVG images can be used with CSS3 to create stretchy and vectorized animations.

The usage of SVG is gaining traction, thanks to its browser support, being scalable and open to manipulation.

IconMelon is a library of free SVG icons that are created by different designers.


It allows us to select items from each set and create a new set for download which makes sure we only insert the icons to be used on our web pages and end up in a smaller file size.

Also, there is an option to add effects like shadow, blur or emboss to the icons.
