The Verge + Chrome on Nexus 7 = poor viewing experience. Anyone else the same?

I really have no idea why. And I don't think it was always like this. The Verge is now always slow to scroll, and when I say slow, I mean unless the page has finished loading, I often can't scroll at all. (This is using the desktop site.) The page about Iron Man 3 ( I can't use at all! Even after loading the page would not scroll!

This doesn't happy on other sites. On the sites where there is some lag between fully loading and scrolling, the problem is not nearly as bad. The Verge stands out as terrible.

On my Nexus 4, bringing up the full desktop site does not pose a problem. It's not perfect, but it's pretty snappy and only needs tweaking in performance rather than it just simply doesn't work.

Am I the only one that this happens to?
