An ever greater number of web sites rather than web pages. But as 
time goes on, more and more of them will be the ones you use now 
rather than new ones.

Page loading isn't changed. It's the time to do the DNS that slows 
you down. Once all DNS servers are really geared up for IPv6 it 
shouldn't be much different. Trouble is, for DNS to work, companies 
that serve out web pages (not only ISPs) need to have two outward 
facing DNS servers, and there's a tendency to just re-purpose some 
old box that the secretary has grown out of rather than use a good 
purpose-architected box.
