If you use the news items on the left side of the screen to navigate to a new page you’ll notice the load time is incredibly fast. I’m curious how they’re achieving this. Unless I’m missing something, I can’t find any frames being used in the HTML.
Infinite scroll loads another article in milliseconds for me.

What do you mean by “this”?
They’re definitely using infinite scroll (AJAX) of some sort, probably custom solution developed to fit their needs.
And they’re most likely on a super fast server.
Here’s a similar WP plugin – http://www.infinite-scroll.com/

Does for me.
Just a guess, but perhaps the content from other pages are being loaded behind the scene?
Edit: Oh I see what you mean. I think the guys above are right. It’s using infinite scroll along with ajax. Pretty much what Twitter does.
Keep in mind they are also using a CDN.
