Steps to reproduce

Open this page:

Try to scroll the page. The take-over / video ads never really seem to finish loading and the page never scrolls properly without going totally blank.

Works fine with the same ads in Chrome and Firefox.

Ads are for Microsoft, so… a tad ironic.

    • Doesn’t repro for me, maybe they’re serving different ads today. We currently observe similar scrolling performance in Firefox an Chrome. Content does have a huge impact on site performance.
