Is there a webpage/wiki that puts into a nice table which OS version/web
browser version combination support IPv6, if it needs any tweaks to do so,
and whether IPv6 is treated equally or given preference?

I'm thinking our help desk....

# defaults write IncludeInternalDebugMenu 1

and apparently there somewhere you can change it around...

more stories.....

I don't have an true idea though as I don't use safari, but I hope the

But, but, did you think about Internet Explorer, Opera, Chrome and all
the others out there? *nudge* :)
