HTML KickStart Updates: Font Awesome, Less Images & More

Font Awesome has over 240 Icons

If you haven't noticed yet, glyph icon fonts are all the rage these days and I love them! Easy to style with CSS, easy to use, small in file size... the list of benifits goes on and on. Html KickStart has used a custom icon font pretty much since it was released. As of Friday, I updated HTML KickStart to use the best icon font yet: Font Awesome!

If you haven't used Font Awesome before, your in-for a huge delight. This is  by far my favorite glyph font and I am excited that it is now part of HTML KickStart. 

A Leaner HTML KickStart

Each time I push an update, I optimize and refine everything I can, especially in the CSS and JS. This update comes with a bunch of optimizations and cleaner, smaller, tighter CSS. I have also removed a few of the images used in different places in HTML KickStart and replaced them with Icons from Font Awesome - making KickStart, well... even awesomer! 

New Website for 99Lime.com

This update also included a new simpler website for 99Lime.com - fully responsive and easier than ever. I am working on expanding the tools and resources I have for designers - so the new redesign is a huge first step in that direction. Expect some great new surprises in the very near future ;) If you haven't seen it yet - go ahead and take a look.

Bonus! A Slick FREE UI Kit PSD

I added a new surprise to the website for you guys: The 99Lime UI Kit PSD - Over 99 Ultra-slick User Interface Elements to use in your Photoshop Designs. Totally Free - go download it right now! I hope it saves you some time creating your next killer web design.
