                                  1.3.x is still the most deployed version of Apache on the Internet, but we strongly recommend considering IPv6 support as good reason for jumping to 2.0.x.

                                  bozohttpd is a small and secure http version 1.1 server. Its main feature is the lack of features, reducing the code size and improving verifiability. It supports CGI/1.1, HTTP/1.1, HTTP/1.0, HTTP/0.9, ~user translations, virtual hosting support, as well as multiple IP-based servers on a single machine. It also supports the IPv6 protocol. It has no configuration file by design.

                                  The leahhttpd project aims towards developing a webserver which does everything a webhoster would need and want, efficiently and quickly. Efficiently would also entail fast data transfer, high throughput and load, support to run on as many architectures and platforms as possible (within reason), and support for new technologies and standards (such as IPv6). LeahHTTPd is not intended to be easy to configure or setup, nor is it intended to have plenty of bells and whistles to handle things that should stay in the CGI world.

                                  Screws is an experimental web server written with extensibility in mind. It's designed in a little core that processes connections and petitions, setenv the spected values and calls an external program or script that processes this and shows what it wants. By this way it's possible to customize every answer of the web server, and extend it as we want in a simple way.

Unfortunately at the moment there is only an IPv6-support patch for the very old 0.92 version of links. If you are interested in using an IPv6-enabled web browser similar to links, you should probably try elinks.

                                  www6to4 is a little web proxy that can communicate over both IPv4 and IPv6. It's primary use is as stub-proxy between a IPv4-only browser and the rest of the (v4 and v6) Internet. However, it will work just fine on IPv4-only or IPv6-only machines. This proxy is meant to run on a client machine as frontend to an IPv4-only browser and not to serve a large number of clients and keep a cache for them. If you need the latter you're much better off with a full-fledged proxy like squid.

It can even drop its privileges and optionally chroot() to some directory. Logging to syslog() is supported, as is using another auxiliary proxy server. An HTTP accelerator feature (acting as a front-end to an HTTP server) is included. Contacting IPv6 servers as well as binding to IPv6 is supported and allows transparent IPv6 over IPv4 browsing (and vice versa).
