With IPv6Foo you can click on the icon and it will show you a table listing
what URLs are serving some piece of a given page with v6 and v4.
LinkedIn for example shows the main feed page served via v6 but there are a
couple of pieces with v4 from these sites
Some may be feeding ads content, others tracking, market research, etc.
