Find and Add Icons

Browse the thousands of icons in v6 Beta to find some icons you like and then add the icon name and style as CSS classes to an HTML <i> tag.

<body>
  <!-- solid style -->
  <i class="fa-solid fa-user"></i>

  <!-- regular style -->
  <i class="fa-regular fa-user"></i>

  <!-- light style -->
  <i class="fa-light fa-user"></i>

  <!-- duotone style -->
  <i class="fa-duotone fa-user"></i>

  <!-- all new thin style -->
  <i class="fa-thin fa-user"></i>

  <!--brand icon-->
  <i class="fa-github-square fa-brands"></i>
