Now that Internet Explorer 9 has a growing market share (5.63% at time of writing, and closing in on IE7 fast), what are some of the major considerations for people wishing to test sites and web applications developed for IE8 (and under) support?

The main point of call so far is Microsoft's IE9 feature list. One of the most standout issues is checking that MIME-types are defined correctly, but I'm interested to hear what other testers have encountered as useful or noteworthy.
