Guys, someone designed this site. Someone took a chunk of their life, time, knowledge and effort to design and build this site. There's a better way to protest against stroll hijacking than making public examples of people's work in a humiliating fashion.
No one is here to humiliate anyone, you got it wrong. I do websites and none of them are perfect, but I am open for criticism. The quality of their work is really good, but the scroll didn't worked for me, making me frustrated to use their website (which happens probably because of the OSX momentum as Matt K. mentioned). They could fix this by trying to normalise the speed of the scroll for different devices (which is really really hard).
Anyway, don't take this to the wrong way Daniel, we don't need this :)
This one is very annoying too: https://mega.co.nz
Oh my, this is the worst.
how about this one?
Warning - Serious scroll-jacking shithttp://www.concerthotels.com/100-years-of-rock
I like it, what's the problem on this scrolling?
The scroll is broken (at least for me, on latest Chrome). If you swipe (trackpad) to the next item, the scroll won't stop where I want to. It has some kind of "inertia" that keeps scrolling even after you stopped. You have to scroll really gently to go to the next page without this problem.
Are you on Windows or on Mac? Wich version? It works like a charm on mine, that's weird.
Mac and using the trackpad (same with the magic mouse) to scroll. I could record a video, but you won't have the input if I am scrolling or not.
I'm not getting the same effect. using a desktop mouse (not magic mouse) and no inertial scrolling. Make sure that's turned off?
Also the performance seems to be fine for me. Not the biggest fan of controlled scrolling but thats another issue lol
For me in Safari, when you reach the bottom of content on any page, it instantly scrolls back to the top of the page. So, as you scroll through content, all of a sudden it resets to the top of the page because you have no idea you had reached the end.
The challenge is: try to scroll to the last page (or even to a specific page).
Ha! I noticed this yesterday or the day before when it was posted here. How it "resets" the scroll to the top once you scroll past the last thing is annoying for sure... because there is ZERO indication you're at the end... so it's always a "WTF!" moment. Heh.
I think this is a lesson in how messing with scrolling at all is incredibly risky cross device. I experienced a very reasonable, if not elegant, slide show effect when scrolling with a stand alone magic trackpad in Chrome/Mountain Lion. I believe I got exactly the experience the site was trying to present. It sounds like several people did not. I switched to a PC mouse with scroll wheel and the site felt a little unresponsive to my scrolling, but still worked decently.
The problem is my experience on the magic trackpad is not the experience everyone will have. Scrolljacking is simply not worth it for this reason. The effect, even in its perfect state, just isn't worth it. I'm just not a huge fan of slide decks in their dedicated state, definitely not on the web.
Again, my experience with the trackpad was very good, but why risk it, especially at the cost of one of the most consistent and understood interaction methods available to users?
This site's scrolling works perfectly fine for me. I like the slideshow feel it gives the whole site
While it's definitely not something to use on most sites, I think it's execution here is well done. It provides a somewhat unique and memorable experience for explaining what their agency is all about. Note that they also have normal scrolling on their portfolio pages. eg. http://www.b14.dk/copenhagenfashionfestival
One idea for improving this implementation might be to have a menu when hovering over the "[title] Page X of Y" in the bottom right that gives you a way to jump to a slide. However, with 5 pages, it's not too painful. Anything more than 5, however, would probably get exponentially more annoying.
It looks like they implemented a fix for this bug, but for some reason this fix is not being used (the code is commented): http://www.b14.dk/sites/all/themes/framework/js/scroller.js (line 14).
Probably they have a reason for that, but at least it's a known bug for them :)
Try this one on for size: http://melanie-f.com/
This doesn't totally bother me. It doesn't really feel forced. A progress indicator would help though. I DO hate that it forces you back to the top at the end of each page.
I actually don't mind this one. There is enough pause between slide changes that nothing unexpected happens....until you reach the last slide. A scrollbar or progress meter would be a nice addition.
This doesn't scroll for me at all on Chrome but works fine in Safari.
Scroll Performance is also really, really bad. They should read this Article maybe next time: http://www.html5rocks.com/en/tutorials/speed/scrolling/
