Why does daringfireball show a "white flash" between pages?

I've noticed that when I click around the popular Daring Fireball
site, there's a brief whitescreen flash in between pages... i.e., the entire browser window turns white for just a moment before the next page loads. Anyone know why?

Strangely enough, it only happens if I move the mouse after clicking the link; if I leave the mouse still, there's no white flash. This happens in Safari and Chrome.
I ask because I'm developing a site that is displaying the same behavior, and I'm wondering if anyone knows a fix. Most sites don't have this problem, but Daring Fireball and a couple of others do.
