Display the server IP address, with a realtime summary of IPv4, IPv6, and HTTPS information across all page elements.
I made this extension to raise everyday awareness of the global IPv4 to IPv6 transition. To respect your privacy, it keeps data in RAM and treats the network as read-only. I can maintain this without ads because there are no server costs.
IPvFoo's action icon shows a large red 4 or green 6 to indicate whether the outer page was fetched using IPv4 or IPv6. If the page connects to other domains, a smaller 4 or 6 appears alongside.
When you click the icon, a table appears with a row for each domain:
- A padlock icon for http://, https://, or a mix of both.
- The IPv4 or IPv6 address. If connections span more than one address, the most recent one wins. The address is highlighted in yellow while connections are open.
- "⭮" for cached requests. The IP address may be stale if no connection was made.
- "S" for WebSocket handshakes. The connection may still be active even if the address is not highlighted.
- "W" if data was fetched through a Service Worker. These requests are linked to an origin (e.g. https://example.com/) instead of a tabId, so the same request may appear in multiple tabs.
Clicking on a hostname or address will select it for convenient copying. There is a right-click option to look up addresses on bgp.he.net. I'm not affiliated, it's just my favorite one.
