Sort of.  They didn't between SQLite 2 and SQLite 3.  There also have 
been some (albeit minor) backwards compatibility issues with SQLite 3.x 
releases.  The most serious of which deal with performance 
characteristics changing because they changed how the optimizer works.

These type of things are acceptable to deal with in browser code because 
you can change your code unlike on the web (unless you want to have 
different code for each browser, and then each browser version).  It's 
that, or browsers can ship one version of SQLite for all eternity.

Cheers,

Shawn
