Searching with Categories
One of the great features they have when going through their icons are the category feature. You are able to distinguish exactly what type of icons you need without going through thousands of them in a mixed lot. The category feature also gives you the option of sorting the icons by the number of downloads, alphabetically, by latest submissions or ratings by the viewers. The icons are easily viewed with their large or small previews and this makes it a breeze when going through quite a few icon pages.
Searching by License Types
This handy feature makes sure that you will be downloading a icon pack with your desired license type.

Finding usable icons has never been this easy.
Great Homepage Layout
IconsPedia has a great layout when it comes to their site. Their new and improved layout makes it easy for you to find what you are looking for. It lists the latest, most downloaded, top rated and featured icons in a box upon entry of the website. Thus making it a breeze to find those icons that no one has used in their projects.
