Yeah. I noticed a CMD window popping up sometimes. Caught a glimpse of pingsender.exe.
What nonsense made them make another exe...

It looks like I came across performance regression.
Start recording performance profile using Shift-F2
Go to ... m=newsfeed
Start scrolling the page down. Once you reach the bottom of the first article, the next article will be loaded automatically. Make sure you scroll through at least 3-4 articles

The problem is that scrolling fps drops heavily when articles are changing. I guess that shouldn't happen. Screenshot of my performance profiles:
Minimum frame rate = 3 fps, that's unacceptable [-X Is it worth filing a bug?
Sorry for my poor English.
