Wow, the article actually closes itself if you scroll too far down? What kind of horrendous design is this?

And you can't even scroll back, potentially being baffled why the website malfunctioned and loaded a new page. It's like a bad UX pattern parody.

Not only that, but it only closes itself if you scroll too fast, thinking that you're not interested in that specific article you've clicked on.

Best example of trying to over-optimize a site I can think of.

The new Techcrunch design is horrible. I stopped reading it entirely because of this design. It is flaky and jumps around leaving you confused if you aren't paying attention.
