This site loads very different assets depending on which browser you use.
Open up the web console (Ctrl+Shift+I), click on Network, and reload the page. Using Firefox I get ~37 requests, while Chrome gives me ~54 requests — 17 more.
The difference? Google.
Across multiple tests, Chrome sends 10-15 times more extra requests to Google than Firefox does on this page. That’s 10-15 extra requests in Chrome vs 1 in Firefox. No plugins, both in Private/Incognito mode with the cache disabled.
This involves Chrome sending requests to Google proper, Google Analytics and Google’s Doubleclick ad network.
