View Full Version : Disabling IPv6 Improves Browsing Performance?

January 3rd, 2006, 12:18 AM
I have read from other forums that users browsing to the internet with IPv6 enabled in their browser takes so much time opening some site. And disabling it is only the solution.

Is IPv6 really make your browsing slow?
What if I will disable ipv6 in my browser?
Can I still access some site that is using IPv6, after disabling it from my browser?

I was just confuse on the issue.

I always disable ipv6 in firefox, and as I have broadband, enaple pipelining, and drop the number of requests up to 30. It seems a hell of a lot faster.

I am not sure if all that is neccesary with FF 1.5. It loads pages very fast even without the faster fox extention installed. Try using the Fasterfox extention and see if that doesn't help.
