Parallax coding was implemented in web designing, because of the need of new creative stuff, every now and then in web development. The use of HTML5 and CSS3, made the process of designing parallax scrolling web pages very much easier, and for the first time, in 2011, it was seen to be used in a website developed by Nike, the sports gear giant. It was a commercial site, promoting a football league, and left the web masters speechless, by the wonderful use of this technique.
