The term Parallax is derived from the Greek word, parallaxis, which gives some indication to its meaning. Parallax means to change position of an object. Parallax scrolling is therefore a technique being more frequently used on modern web designs to move text, images and more, around a web page frame to create interesting visual movement where it is needed.
One page themes which use a different parallax scrolling effect to zoom down or up to the right spot on a very long single page site are also becoming more commonplace. These types of themes are popular with creatives and web studios that want to lay out their team info, latest portfolio, and contact details all on one seamless page incorporating a cool parallax zooming effect. Certain jQuery Parallax Plugins can also help to create this type of navigational effect as well.
