You can use iD with your web browser live on the OpenStreetMap.org home page. Simply zoom in on the area you are interested in, and click the "edit" button!
Note: In your user preferences you can set the "edit" button to launch different editors. In that case you still can find "iD" inside the "Edit ▼" menu drop-down. By default though, new users would click simply "edit".
To help you learn iD, there is an interactive walkthrough inside the editor. You will see a prompt on the start-up screen, and it is always accessible via the help icon () on the right-hand side (keyboard shortcut is 'H'). You also can browse the collection of questions related to iD on help.osm.org. If your question has not been asked already, just add it. A list of keyboard shortcuts is available, too.
A more detailed tutorial for iD can be found at the LearnOSM web site.
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.
