Beautiful Scroll Effects for Your Website

If you want to fancy up your site with a nice scrolling effect, choosing the right animation is essential. One of these CSS snippets should be just the thing to add some awesome parallax or scrolling effects to a page.

Some CSS and maybe a splash of JavaScript can make all the difference in how your site feels and acts. Most if not all of this code is free to use or base your own programming off of, so feel free to test drive any of these examples on your own website. Any one of these effects would make a great addition.
