CSS Icons: 20 Vibrant, Fast, and Light Code Snippets

Use of modern and cutting-edge features of CSS3 has long ago moved from experimental to ordinary. Developers often turn to advanced properties such as animations, pseudo-classes, selectors, calculating values, 3d transforms, etc. without fear of browser compatibility or possible crashes. With an excellent support from JavaScript that can be used for fallbacks, creating websites from CSS-only elements nowadays has become a reality. It concerns not only static objects but also dynamic ones. Almost every detail of the layout can be reproduced through a skillful combination of HTML and CSS.

It is well-suited for reproducing clean, crisp, subtle, apparent and not complex graphics though there is always room for exceptions.
