With Apple incorporating the parallax effect into its new iPhone design, it has become increasingly popular to use everywhere. The idea behind it, is that it tricks the brain into perceiving the screen differently than what it actually is. Because of HTML5 and CSS3, developers can use different angles and 3D effects that can create a pleasing user experience if done correctly.
Many websites now use parallax scrolling, which shows the background moving at a slower rate than the foreground, sometimes creating an illusion that the content is ‘popping’ out of the screen.
We’ve put together a collection of fantastic templates that you can use to get this cool effect for your website now. Let us know what you think!
