The overall effect gives the viewer a seamless and intriguing browsing experience that just looks damn good!

    I feel so cool right now for reading about this before I actually have seen it employed (maybe I need to surf more but I honestly haven’t seen this effect yet!) I think I might be ahead of the curve **awesome points!!**

    I love parallax scrolling but I only know html and css. Should I learn JQuery for this? Javascript? What do you suggest?

  • Happy Negi

    love this and thanks for this <3

  • Nice post. You have shared good example of parallax scrolling. I also have the same question like Michele… Is JavaScript is better for the designing of parallax scrolling? or you suggest some other language.
