comment Are there established practices on versioning of a shared web service?
@TomSquires: Yes, although I usually see them referred to as "ASP.NET Web Services" so that's what I went with in the question. And I figure it's an issue to RESTful services as well?

Yes but that's not the question. The question is, basically, do you run into more compatibility issues with a Universal App than you do with two device-specific but otherwise identical Apps? I would assume that if you have an issue with, say, iOS 3.1.3 on the original iPhone, then you would have it whether or not it's an iPhone-only App or a Universal App.

comment How should you approach supporting rapidly-updating web browsers?
I like what you're saying, but when I have managers asking me what versions to specify that we'll be supporting when we release something in, say, November, and they want to say "Firefox 4" and forget it when Firefox 6 will be out by then, and my QA guys don't want to move quickly to support a new version of the browser, which is understandable from a workload, what am I supposed to tell them when I get resistance to "just have the latest version" ?

The problem is that thanks to automatic updating, people actually will start updating a lot more frequently. They won't even realize they're doing it. Thanks to Chrome's installation in the AppData folder, it doesn't even trip up UAC on Windows 7 when it updates.

@Bernard: The problem is that Firefox and Chrome update themselves automatically. You can potentially be launching a new version every time you start the browser. I could be wrong but I don't think that locking into an older version is going to fly for much longer.
