10 Best WordPress Themes Using the Parallax Effect

parallax

The Parallax Effect has solidified it’s present in web design for a while now, but recently it has been perfected and more importantly… it looks cool.

par·al·lax

ˈparəˌlaks/
noun
  1. the effect whereby the position or direction of an object appears to differ when viewed from different positions, e.g., through the viewfinder and the lens of a camera.
This type of effect has made web browsing a little bit more interactive without being intrusive and that is why I think the Parallax effect will be a design trend for the next little while.  Here are my top 10 best WordPress themes using the Parallax effect.
