Chrome locks up while loading a big page

view story

http://unix.stackexchange.com – If I load a page e.g. a reddit post with lots of comments, mall of my tabs lock up while it loads. I can't scroll or click anything. Is there a way to prevent this? In Windows, if I scroll during loading, I can see the page being drawn (which I prefer, as I can already explore the webpage). So, how to prevent Chrome locking up during a page-load? (HowTos)
