IPv6 now faster than IPv4 when visiting 20% of top websites – and just as fast for the rest

Re: We didn't run out of ipv4

Don't get me wrong, getting rid of NAT is good, and I operate an ipv6-only website which really helps to keep the peasant scum out.

True, for a while. I've just looked at my firewall logs going back about 3 weeks. In that time I've had about 40k v4 'door knockers' that my firewall dropped. The v6 equivalent is essentially zero except for a few odd probes from pnap.net which look like attempts to measure performance. This is on a home network prefix with no outward-facing servers. That won't last but I think we have a few years before it gets bad.
