The thing is, making one of these websites is difficult. In css there is no height=100% (only width=100%).
Great Article! Check it out!
Making these sites are very challenging. The thing that I have ran into when creating them is to have only one thing show up on the “active” window. Also, it’s interesting to try to get these to work across multiple resolutions. I would like to see a few tutorials on how to get around these hurdles. Also, my concern with horizontal sites, is that the “standard” user will get intimidated by them, I created one and had some “not-so tech savvy” people use it and they didn’t really know what to do and when the JQUERY slid the page they were in a bit of shock. I do think that these sites are very, very cool and definitely bring a whole new area of the web world to web designers.

Another great post!
Those are really beautiful! Personally I’ve always been iffy about horizontal layouts since they make assumptions of the visitor’s browser resolution most of the time. Too high and they get a scroll bar, too low, and the layout looks silly :/
Regardless of the quality of design, i find the horizontal scrolling harder to use. It makes me dizzy, and the scrolling down gesture just feels more natural.
ericj is amazing
Here is the same portfolio with horizontal scrolling (they show a lot of the same work but are implemented on different web sites.
