Icon Fonts vs SVGs


Fontawesome icons

I came across this great slideshow presentation from Seren Davies on why we should use SVGs for icons instead of using icon fonts (which are very popular).

I have to admit that we love icon fonts here at Cookie Web so this is definitely food for thought. I think a little more research is needed before we decide to drop Icon Fonts altogether, however Seren raises some significant advantages to SVGs regarding browser support and accessibility.
