Are you sure understand the sometimes glacial speed of Digg? It's notorious for being ridiculously slow at times, even to the point it's almost a joke (just ask the reddit crowd). I just loaded Digg in OmniWeb and Firefox on my old G5, and Firefox loaded slower.

Right now there's at least 12 javascripts on the homepage, and that tends to slow down any WebKit browser. It gets worse over time, so leaving your browser on for days tends to bog it down in Safari or OmniWeb. It's truly horrible in Safari, though, and the OmniWeb team's made great strides in making it better than Apple's native browser.

That said, I think you're describing the same behavior you get when you've had your browser open for a while (days) combined with the slowness that is Digg.
