Test your connectivity for World IPv6 Day

After a little bit of research it seems like an (expected) mtu issue.

Firefox/IE on PPPoE (1492) => some issues
Chromium on PPPoE (1492) => no issues
Firefox/IE/Chromium on IPoE (1500) => no issues

I don't know that Chromium does and overcomes it. I guess i'll have to 
get some captures.
What is even more strange, is that the actual sites are reachable 
without any issue (although they do take a while to load).
