I'm running on Ubuntu 12.04.

I can ping, dig and resolve any website/hostname.

But If I try to browse a particular website Google Chrome (and lynx, and firefox, and opera too) runs on timeout.

I can access the same website from Windows and Mac os, no chance to open it from Ubuntu.

Absolutely no idea. Any advice on how to debug?

PS: Already tried to change dns, nothing happens.

Edit: The issue has been solved at my end.

strangest thing is that I'm able to PING and DIG the domain (so the dns are working the right way I guess) and I'm actually able to browse that website from another machine with Win7 or MacOS. It's sad. – S.C. Dec 17 '12 at 12:05
As I said, we are having similar issues. I can PING and DIG the domain. And I can access that website from the same machine with Win7 (Dual-Boot). – Aditya Dec 17 '12 at 12:07
