re: Are You Part Of The 1%?
To Mike010: Yes, it means that 1% are using devices that are able to access IPv6 enabled websites (according to various measurement studies). The answer to your second question is not necessarily. Your computer may have IPv6 capability turned on by default. But it also needs to have a functioning IPv6 network in order to reach other IPv6 sites. This means your local network (home, corporate, campus) needs to have IPv6 deployed and and have IPv6 connectivity via an ISP to the rest of the Internet. If you don't have this, it may still possible to reach IPv6 sites by tunnelling IPv6 inside IPv4 to a remote tunnel/relay server.

re: Are You Part Of The 1%?
What does it mean to say that "1% of U.S. Internet users are IPv6-capable?" That 1% can access IPv6 websites? The article also says, "IPv6 is on by default in all modern computer operating systems." Does this mean that if I have a "modern" OS I am probably part of the 1% (which would seem very low depending on the definition of modern)? Does it depend on my ISP?
