This, coupled with the upward trend of responsive web (to suit all types of devices), websites with scroll is becoming a tendency in web design.
One of the trends for the web design is the Parallax scrolling effect. It is 100% web scrolling, single page that can go down to infinity, and spectacular visuals reminiscent of a video game. One of the most successful examples is the web of the film Life of Pi
. Although by Parallax can get an attractive web design and easily navigable for users, we don’t recommend it to our clients, because of a fundamental reason: SEO.
