Icon Finder: Search for icons by keyword

Icon Finder helps you find relevant icons by searching for keywords.

Icon Finder has a clean and minimalist design. Thankfully, the site is not stuffed with ads – there are just a couple of private ads and an AdSense unit at the bottom of the site. One can only hope that this lack of advertising does not cause the site to be closed down in future.

Searching for some typical keywords (like computer, camera etc.) turned up relevant results. The accuracy of results would probably depend on the type of keywords used. The quality of results found by search was not amazing, but browsing the icon packs (link to which is on home page) turns up quite a few good icons.

There are a few options to be tweaked while searching for icons – number of icon previews to be listed per page, background color and size of icons.

On clicking through to an icon’s download page, you can see more details about the icon – including name of designer, license, and whether it is part of any icon set (in which case, a link to the icon set is also displayed).

Other sizes and versions of the icon, and other icons from the same icon set are listed after this, so that you can explore further in case the icon in question does not satisfy your needs.

    Thanks for reviewing Iconfinder.

    I can tell you that there will not be ads all over the pages and the current level of ads pay the server cost, so it’s going to be up for a long time.

    The Iconfinder looks cool and I will have to check it out, but I absolutely love the character in the logo too.
