1. I can consistently browse to a random set of websites without problems.

When I visit pages at Experts Exchange I have very slow response time and recurring connection errors:

eg:
Felkod: ERR_CONNECTION_RESET

pings                              ms, ca
experts-exchange        140
nytimes                       100
wikipedia                       25

I'm on latest
Version 32.0.1700.107 m
of Chrome

You can try disabling the Antivirus active scan and check,

Also you can disable Antivirus addins,

Uninstall unwanted toolbars and plugins.

Try clearing history / cache / cookies

To check further : You can download and install HTTP Watcher and check the websites response time.

Are able to open in EE site in other browsers with good speed ?

Check in Internet Explorer and Mozilla and check the speed.

Seems to something problem with Add-on or plugins.

it may be a routing problem with just that website.

try clearing out the routing tables in your Router.  For Example Google "clear routing tables for Netgear" (instead of netgear use your routers brand) then and restart the Router.  then try the connection again.

you can see a visual map of where your connection goes to get to EE website  using this tool:
