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.
