Free icons for web application and client/server?

Where can I find free consistent icons for application use? Icons such as trash for delete, addnew icon, report, search; icons for typical application. thanks.

Try these icons... I have used them in some projects and they are quite nice...

I don't know where you can get a collection of free icons that you will really be happy with, but i have found a few sites that sell icon collections for a  reasonable price ($200-500). Here are a few below:

Hope that helps. Also, if anyone knows of similar sites to the ones above, please post them.

I just looked at the icons that come with VS 2003, and man they suck - same thing as there ever was.  Ugh.  So 1995.

Why doesn't MS spend a little effort on a new icon set?  I mean...they want people to use a standardized look-and-feel, don't they?

I'm not asking for free stuff (tho I don't object to free), I just want what comes with the latest tools to not look like crap.

VS 2005 is supposed to have a new icon set. I haven't looked at it yet to really see if it is any better.

There are quite a few impressive looking open-source icons and sets that have their origin for KDE or Gnome on Linux.  Usually, though, they're pretty distinctive and might look a little odd juxtaposed with your normal Windows icons.  But definitely worth a look. Try here:
