Issues with Safari and Reddit

For about the last year, I'd say 25% of the time I attempt to load any reddit page, the progress in the URL bar gets to about 15% and then just hangs, never loading the page. The only way to fix this is to turn my wifi off and back on quickly, and then reload things. I do not have this issue in chrome or firefox. The only extension I'm running in Safari is my password manager. Turning it off doesn't seem to have any effect.

Has anyone ever experienced this? Is this an issue with Safari? Is the wifi on my MBP messed up? Any reason it would only be reddit, and work in other browsers still?
