Web Design: Scrolling Sites

The way pages are built for the web is in transition, from the old HTML 4 and newer XHTML standards to the rising HTML 5. This is going to open up whole new areas of page design, which I for one applaud.

But we in the business have long relied on a print paradigm that involves, well, pages. Pages that you “turn” and go “back” to. What happened to the good old scroll? There are some advantages to the way it presents information.

See this excellent TheNextWeb.com article, “9 Excellent examples of scrolling websites for designers” for some beautiful examples of the form.
