Microsoft is trying again to help their target developers fix their sites. They have launched modern.ie[^] to provide tools and guidance.

One of the first benefits is a page scanner you can point at your site to get a nice report of known or possible issues with the site. For example, did you know a certain orange Web site is using jQuery 1.6.2? If you ran that site through the scanner you'd see that it's a possible issue, complete with guidance on what to do with that information.

They've also partnered with BrowserStack to give you three months worth of their browser testing service for free (regular USD19/month). This allows you to view your page(s) in a variety of browser/OS combinations (complete with add-ins for Chrome, Firefox and Visual Studio to make popping up those scans easier). Sadly, it looks like this requires a Facebook login.
