Tango icon library features a basic icons’ set which is regularly used by the developers of open source applications. One can use a variety of aids to easily locate the appropriate icons for one’s needs. All the icons come with their own SVG versions comprising of useful meta-information such as keywords which make it easy for those icons to be found.
