The following is a guest post by by Parker Bennett. While icon fonts are efficient and easy to use and scaleable and all that, one of the classic "strikes" against them is that the icon can only be one color. Parker has a brand new project that solves that issue in a simple and clever way. I'll let him introduce it for you.
Even though the future of icons will likely be SVG, here in the present, icon fonts still offer a compelling alternative — with super easy styling of color, size, text-shadows, hover effects and more using just CSS. Icon fonts are still awesome.
