Reload the page until the same "shaking" ad pops up on Chimera and IE and compare.. Chimera is slower rending the same page with the same ad than IE.. (besides, why should the shaking ad make a huge performance hit on the page when the ad is not updated on the screen for as long as the scroll bar is held down?)
Really slow in 1.2.1 Mozilla as well.
Some others page really slow on MacOs X, tested both on Mozilla 1.3b and on Chimera (fast enough on Windows or with Safari) : http://www.w3.org/Style/ (very very slow) http://www.macgeneration.com/actu/ (slow)

The URLs in comment 4 are not that bad, but somewhat slow. See http://www.hiwaay.net/support/faq/index.cgi?view_category=1&catid=50 or http://www.hiwaay.net/support/faq/index.cgi?view_category=1&catid=88 (or any other hiwaay.net page, for that matter) for pages that cause intense CPU/kernel thrashing. The hiwaay pages scroll fine in Opera 7.03, IE 6, Amaya 7.2 & even Netscape 2.02(!).
On Windows Xp, build 2003032308, all url:s scroll very smooth. PIII, 800 Mhz, Geforce 2 MX.

so, marking wfm?
2 other URLs that scroll far from smoothly : http://www.linuxfr.org/ http://www.gloriousnoise.com/ (reports say that even on a bi-1.2 Ghz, it isn't smooth) This bug seems to be MacOs X only (no slowdown at all on an old PIII 550)

Is this bug still valid? Attached URL is smooth.
No more particular problem on any page since Gecko 1.9 has landed. I think this bug could be closed.
