almost all of our browsers in openSUSE do that by default now also.

It's not the browsers, it's the operating system that determines that.

It's the application programmer who decides which protocol to
prefer at first for his application. If he really implements it neutral,
it's the resolver and the nameserver.
firefox for example has it's own resolver, so the operating system has
no way to influence that.
