window.load can fire super duper fast if the page is cached. If you want to use that event but make sure a minimum amount of time has passed until it does…

(function fn() {

  fn.now = +new Date;

  $(window).load(function() {

     if (+new Date - fn.now < 500) setTimeout(fn, 500);
     
		 // Do something

  });

})();
