The Effects of Parallax Scrolling on User Experience in Web Design

Parallax scrolling is becoming an increasingly popular strategy in web design.

  • Replace automatic infinite scrolling with a “Load more results…” button or link that explicitly invites the user to add more. Once they do a few times, prompt them to ask if they’d like to turn auto-loading of more results on.
  • No, really, just don’t implement infinite scrolling.
