For quite a while, web designers concentrated their efforts above the fold fearing that visitors wouldn’t bother scrolling down the page to read their content. However, web designers and developers have slowly begun to embrace the scroll and have begun using it as a way to engage and impress their users using various effects such as background reveals, animations and other interesting effects.

I'm not so fond of this trend of scroll based websites. What I want to say is that, although the impression that the website makes is very good in the beginning, using the website extensively will become a burden. I can't imagine a blog or an e-commerce website that is scroll based.

I'm not fond of scroll based websites either, but the designers who made these made them look quite good. And a parallax ecommerce site is financial suicide. Parallax or generally said, scroll based sites, can only be used as a dynamic presentation, for telling a story.
