With JavaScript disabled, the images load instantaneously the second time I open the page.

I couldn't reproduce the "quick on the second load with javascript enabled" - exact steps...?

We need a sample

Develop > Disable JavaScript.

Load URL once. Close window. Open new window and enter URL.

CPU usage is very low. Looks like network latency dominates. For what it's worth, I did not get noticeably better results in Firefox uncached loads.
