How many of you here using FontAwesome?
I find it incredibly useful for displaying icons on my websites without having to sacrifice that extra loading time to load images but it requiring to include JS and CSS files, I don't know which can affect to loading of a web page or not.
If you don't use FontAwesome, what will you use instead?

FontAwesome icon packs are used on almost all modern websites. There is only a single css file to load, so it should not impact your website loading speed.
You can use their CDN to deliver Fontawesome assets faster and without using your own bandwidth.

There are also other icon pack available :

I use FontAwesome as well. But if you use their CDN as VirtuBox have mentioned, the CSS file won't be downloaded every time a user visits your site because the chances are he/she might already have it cached on their web browser.
