Although infinity and parallax scrolling are both found within web design, they don't necessarily go hand-in-hand. These two scroll types have very distinct differences between each other. Avatar New York explains the main differences between the two:

"Infinity scrolling" assumes its "infinity" definition. Websites that utilize the infinity scroll seemingly go on forever. The content is grabbed from separate pages and compiled under what appears to be one single page, allowing users to scroll down on one page rather than bouncing from one to another. Infinity scrolling is great for user experience with minimal transition effects, easy navigation, and great in-browser performance.

On the other hand, parallax scroll doesn't have to "scroll" at all. Firstly, what does "parallax scrolling" exactly mean? This technique creates an illusion of depth through superimposed layers. This visual effect is accomplished when the background images move slower than images in the foreground. When it comes to web design, parallax scrolling actually manipulates the scrollbar and replaces it with content that can be displayed either vertically or horizontally. This allows companies to tell their story in an animated format, provokes curiosity, and decreases your website bounce rate.

Infinity and parallax scrolling each have unique benefits as well as their own disadvantages. Whereas parallax scrolling may affect SEO efforts, it may be more difficult to track analytics with infinity scrolling. However, there are various advantages to these two scroll types as previously mentioned.
