SQLite has a fantastic track record of maintaining backwards compatibility.

IndexedDB has as yet no track record, no consistent implementations, no widespread deployment, only measurably poor performance and a lukewarm indexing and querying API.

If anything it's the other way round. You have yet to convince developers that IndexedDB will be faster, more stable, more powerful, more memory efficient than SQLite and with better test coverage at that.
