nytimes.com

anybody read nytimes.com?
It is slow as hell and causes my browser to become very sluggish and it uses up to 50% of my cpu.
Tried it on firefox & IE and also with flash blocker.
anybody else have this issue?

Never visited nytimes.com but it happens to me on washingtonpost.com and to a lesser extent baltimoresun.com. Those newspaper sites love to load pages up with ads so I would imagine just the task of trying to block them is choking the browser.

I do read it and haven't seen any slowness problem. I use Chrome on the PC and Dolphin on the tablet.
