Anybody Else Dislike Parallax Scrolling?

over 6 years ago from

Sorry, but I really think "Parallax Scrolling" is annoying. All I notice is the animation and not the actual content. I haven't felt this annoyed about a design trend since Flash Intros. Anybody else?

    This is more like a "fixed scroll jacking" as opposed to parallax scrolling.

    Parallax scrolling would mean that the background would move at a different speed than actually being scrolled. In this case, it's more like jack scrolling and maintaining the speed of the scroll.

    Scrolljacking aside, I like this and think it works well here.

    I think there are some bad uses of paralax out there, I dont think this website is one of them.

    It works for google especially when they are trying to push Android Lollipop with motion being a huge chunk of the UX.
