This is pretty strange and we've gotten 3-4 reports of members not being able to load anything on www.metafilter.com (ask, metatalk, everything else works) in just Google Chrome's latest version (Firefox/Safari work fine), on OSX. Anyone have any ideas what could be going on?

We mods are all on the latest versions of Chrome and on macs, but no one can reproduce the problem. We have broken it down to specific requests, but once we remove one outside server (like the ad network call), it just hangs on the next item, and times out. Everyone has reported disabling all extensions and plugins and still having the problem.
It's only on www, only Chrome, and only macs so far. Could it be DNS issues? A certificate thing? Some other unknown bug in the latest Chrome? Everything's working fine for me here so I'm at a loss of what to try next with someone having this issue.
