Microsoft is making progress with the future of IE, and I like this site coming out of beta.

At //build 2014, we talked about our commitment to building a deeper partnership with Web developers. We started by launching the beta of status.modern.ie which included a first peek at features in development for the next version of Internet Explorer.Microsoft Updates Its IE Platform Priorities [blogs.msdn.com]
we are happy to announce that we are removing the beta tag from status.modern.ie! We’ve incorporated a number of improvements based on your feedback. Here’s a look at just some of the changes we’ve made:

  • Open Sourced – the data in status.modern.IE is useful for many purposes and many developers have expressed an interest in contributing to the project. Starting today, the entire site (including the data that backs it) is available on GitHub under the Apache V2 license. We also expose the IE support data as a service, provided under the Creative Commons Attribution v2 license. Check out our Readme for more.
  • Improved Search & Filter – we heard the feedback that the Web platform is vast and finding the features you care about was a bit tricky in the original beta site. The new “Interop” menu lets you easily enter in your browser support interests to find features available in the Web platform.
  • Deep Linking – via HTML5 History and Angular routing, status.modern.IE enables you to deep link to a feature you want to share with others. For example, go straight to GamePad API status.
  • Better Mobile Support & Performance – nearly 20% of our visitors are from mobile devices. We’ve further optimized the site to make sure you can get at the latest browser status while discussing the Web over coffee or testing out your site in IE11 for Windows Phone 8.1 Developer Preview.
  • We’re also announcing a new set of features that are now In Development for Internet Explorer, including:

  • Web Audio
  • Media Capture
  • ES6 Promises
  • HTTP/2
