Icons have become an integral part of web designing. Incorporating icons on websites makes your information more understandable and attractive. There is an icon for every occasion, you name it, and you will definitely find one for yourself. There are social icons, cart buttons, lists, navigational icons, and many more.
When creating a website using Elementor Page Builder, you will get many icons in the Icon library, which you can add to make your website look appealing and simplified. However, Elementor also allows you to add some other icons apart from those present in the library.
