Atomic browser jerky scrolling


There is a heated discussion on the Macrumor forums about why Apple recently forced developers to use broken/poorly written API’s in the Apple Webkit which has caused many of the after market browsers to crash or become slow/jerky when scrolling web pages.  I decided to try the site being discussed - boingboing site (I never heard of this site) to see what the issue is.  The site is somewhat jerky when scrolling around the page.  I decided to try a site I am very familiar with – Engadget.  I visit this site daily and it’s true with the latest update the scrolling is much worse.  I don’t feel it’s unusable but Apple did a crap job here and it’s just inexcusable that they can’t fix their own dev kit.
