Scrollorama: An Amazing jQuery Scroll Plugin

Scrollorama is a sweet free jQuery plugin for animated scrolling created by John Polacek. It’s got all sorts of jQuery scrolls built in: transitions including fade-in, fly-in, rotate-in and zoom-in; the ability to pin and unpin text as you scroll; parallax scrolling (where items move at different speeds—so trippy); and easing. What is easing? According to Adobe, “easing refers to gradual acceleration or deceleration during an animation, which makes your animations appear more realistic.” Get the plugin here.
