Since May 2013 you can use iD live on the OpenStreetMap.org homepage (inside the "Edit ▼" menu; of course you also can select it as your standard editor in your user preferences). You can can contribute to OSM by adding and editing nodes, ways, areas and their tags (relations are not supported yet)!
Supported browsers: Internet Explorer is not (yet) supported by iD (bugs: IE9, IE10). Firefox shows (at least for some users) bad performance (a discussion; bugs: 1, 2 3). You may want to use another browser for running iD.
Documentation is available inside the editor (via start-up screen prompt and always via the bookmark icon on the left side-panel). You can also browse the collection of questions related to iD on help.osm.org and ask there if the question is not already asked. A list of keyboard shortcuts is available, too.
iD uses d3js as a rendering layer and has a fast, modular core that manages OSM data. The primary mode of rendering is via SVG, though other renderers will be considered in the future. Performance improvements and relation editing are on the roadmap for version 1.1.
