Most probably, you are running into delays because your browser queries
websites for an IPv6 address before trying an IPv4 address.
Reportedly, many ad-sites use broken nameservers which botch IPv6
queries, causing the delay. The problem lies on their end, not yours,
but disabling IPv6 or using a proxy server like Squid will probably
remove the delays.
