Microsoft in IE8 beta 2 made a commitment not to break the web. Following the same even IE9 cannot be now counted as a single browser. According to looks of it, Compatibility view will survive into the Final version (RTM) of IE9 allowing the browsers to acts as IE5,IE7,IE8 as well as IE9, displaying it on web content it plays nice with modern web standards as it is designed to be more compatible with older versions of Internet Explorer.

Early users can grab the IE9 Platform Preview and start swapping rendering models. Some of the best shortcuts are Alt+5: Force IE5 rendering mode, Alt+7: Force IE7 render mode, Alt+8: Force IE8 Rendering mode and Alt+7 Force IE9 Rendering mode.F12 launches Default developer tools . These developers tools allow users to control the browser mode: IE7, IE8, IE9 but also IE9 with 7 Compatibility view and IE8 8 compatibility view. Document mode is also made available with Quirks Mode,IE7 Standards, IE8 standards and IE9 standard, which are made default. In order to revert the Default Document mode, press ALT+O. .

By looks IE9 is much similar to IE8 and will be much interesting to watch the changes to be included in First public beta of IE9 browser.
