I tried to navigate The Verge and noticed following facts.

When TheVerge is opened the first time it takes around 60-80 megs of memory. With each article opened in new tab memory it consumes increases by about 40-50 megs more. I couldn't notice any slowness while I was browsing articles at The Verge. For digit.in also I was not able to cross 200 megs with three tabs.

Maybe infinite scroll of digit.in makes your memory run of bytes. And while you don't run out of RAM which forces your stuff to move to paging file, you won't feel slowness. Or maybe some add on is to blame for memory leak.

Loads fine on firefox and chrome. Main page itself is 5-6mb.
Yeah, even ars loads faster for me than verge.

Another reason for the slow load could be because a higher data transfer has to happen before the page even begins to show.
