Basically in the title, how can we force Safari to use iPv6 protocole rather than iPv4 when both are available (which is not the case by default !!!????)

I've checked with Chrome and Firefox and both prefer iPv6 to iPv4...

    There is no way to force apps on OS X to use a specific version of the Internet Protocol. Since a couple of major OS X versions there is a daemon in the background that determines which protocol would give you a lower latency and in general a faster connection. In your case it automatically selects the IPv4 protocol, because it is faster.
