This problem was present with 14.10, 15.04, and 15.10, I simply haven't been able to fix it.
I'm using Chrome 50 as a browser. I've changed the
hosts: files dns line in
nsswitch.conf file, and tried other suggested fixes.
My friend with MacOS does not experience the same slowness.
Here is some Laptop info. I'm on a Dell XPS 13 with i3 processor, and I can gladly show more if needed.

Thanks in advance!
