Do one thing and do it well. This wise philosophy has been taken on board by the people at Web Features (opens in new tab), resulting in a WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) web app that rapidly walks you though the process of creating your own parallax scrolling (opens in new tab) set-ups.

In fact, should you be interested in the process, but not too enamoured of the back to basics approach of the app itself, the code is well enough written that you can have the gist of what’s going on with a single read-through.
