Seems half thought out and not very effective. You still have to go to the FA website and the example of x5 or any color changing is lacking. Still takes a fair amount of coding. Should be on StackOverflow as a developer tool and not advertised as a "finished" plugin. Should be worked on more so icons can be searched and colors changed in the block sidebar like other block plugins on this repository. Missing the awesome.
