It seems to be a new trend in web design, and I can affirm that is somehow influenced by the responsive madness(building responsive websites raise a problem when normal icons are scaled on retina-display but this issue can be solved using icon fonts. But why to use icon fonts and not icons?

As you browse around the internet on your favorite website or blog, you may notice that a little icon rests next to the URL, whether in the navigation tool bar or the tabs in your browser. It caught your attention, which makes it a great addition to that website. That icon is known as a favorites icon, which is exceptionally effective in giving a website or blog the novelty it needs to grab the attention of visitors.
