Out of beta! Status.modern.ie is launched to help the Web work for everyone – users, developers and businesses

At Build 2014 in April, the beta of status.modern.ie was made available, with a first look at features in development for the next version of Internet Explorer. After getting lots of feedback, and making improvements based on that feedback, the beta tag comes off Wednesday, and status.modern.ie is now launched.

In creating status.modern.ie, “We have rallied the team around a simple people-centric and pragmatic vision: The Web should just work for everyone – users, developers and businesses,” writes Sam George, Internet Explorer partner group program manager, in a blog post.

For one thing, starting Wednesday, the entire status.modern.ie site is available on GitHub, under the Apache V2 license, for the many developers who have expressed an interest in contributing to the project.

There’s much more, including improved search and filter, deep linking, better mobile support and performance. To read George’s entire post, head over to the IEblog.
