You do realize a lot of these are not free for commercial purposes and some are not even free to take (eg. the Scholny Univercitet icons)?

Very useful resource for web designers and definitely worthy of bookmarking! I like that you also included the Icon repositories and search engines… However you might could have broken it into multiple posts.

Thanks for this!
