Parallax scroll has become mainstream, Ian Coyle created the very first parallax website for Nike "Nike Better World" on 2011, nowadays it is overused as a trendy effect but it is a great tool if it serves the user experience and is perfect for storytelling websites.

The term is derived from the Greek ?????????? (parallaxis), meaning "alteration". Nearby objects have a larger parallax than more distant objects when observed from different positions, so parallax scrolling can be used to determine distances.
