The Admin has admitted that the new engine is javascript heavy.
I am running FF on this PC with some add-ons and other tweaks and it loads fine.
On another PC I am using an old version of Opera (Version 6) and it loads just fine but not quite as pretty.

No offence taken. I work on the development side, so I'm allowed to ignore corporate interests for the most part. I don't have any stake in the browser wars, so my suggestions are from personal experience and from reading various benchmarks when they show up in tech news.

My PCs are fast enough that I don't have an issue with JS heavy sites, so I run FF with a bunch of security and privacy add-ons. If FF works fine for you, I certainly wouldn't suggest that you switch. If you can't leave your browser open for days at a time without needing the task manager, or everything is just too bloody slow, it would be a good idea to try Chrome.

I don't recommend Opera just because Chrome solves the speed issues and seems to play better with more websites. It's not being anti-Opera, but rather that I'd suggest trying Chrome first.

I am admittedly out-dated on Opera but content with FF.
Too many anti-trust issues with Google-everything so I avoid it.
Off-topic, anyone tried Blackle? http://www.blackle.com/
