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

NAT and firewalling are two completely different things. You can have firewalling without NAT.

> IPv6 eliminates the need for the NAPT and allows for transparent end-to-end connectivity. That will allow applications that don't require centralised control.

Except, would you really configure your firewall/gateway to allow all inbound traffic to all devices on your home network?? I doubt it.

The IoT is still going to use "meet in the middle" servers, with or without NAT.
