This might be something that many of you already do, but I was having
my workpiece from sliding back and forth a small amount while cutting a
miter on a tablesaw,
resulting in a not-so-straight cut. I found that putting a piece of
adhesive backed sandpaper
on the face of the miter gauge to grip the wood really helped.
Where it really helps is when you're cutting an angle other than 90
because that's when the piece tends to slide the most. Takes the
out of the knuckles, its no good to be tense around a table saw.

I've seen fences offered for some miter gages that have some kind of
non slip material on them. I've never tried them though.
It's been my observation that if I tend to have some slipping, against
the gage, it's usually time to put on a sharp blade.
