Font Awesome gives you scalable vector icons that can instantly be customized — size, color, drop shadow, and anything that can be done with the power of CSS.
Cikonss are created in order to be pure CSS, responsive and cross-browser usable. By “cross-browser” I mean IE8 as well. This means that CSS2 is in use which leads to limited shapes (and icons) available.
Some of icons do have border-radius property but this is mainly for fine styling in browsers that supports this property. This doesn’t effect in loosing the shape of the icon.
Foundation custom icon sets that are stored in a handy web font and are coded to be more accessible. A couple lines of CSS and the right markup will get you going in no time.
