Verge Website - Slow to Load

Not sure if this is the correct place to put this but I'm finding The Verge front page takes a lengthy time to load and has just now caused Chrome to hang for about 10-15 seconds (nothing else was running!).

It doesn't usually take quite that long, usually in the region of 2-3 seconds which still feels long for a website. Just wondered whether anyone else noticed a similar issue?
