Of course, all of use know about Font Awesome . It is an icon font which allows you to add images to your website. But recently, a lot of new images are being added to Font Awesome. That makes it heavy. A lot of icons are not needed in every project. That means you are carrying junk code making your site load slower. Which of course is bad SEO.
We’ve also fully converted to SVG icons instead of relying on a font icon. This is more efficient than shipping a giant and mostly unused icon font. Plus, it’s now much easier to switch any visible icon in Discourse with something else, even a completely custom one-off glyph that you created.Popular open source software Discourse has taken a right step in this direction. They have dumped Font Awesome for custom SVG icons.
