Lesson 16. Working with Frames > Should You Use Frames?

Should You Use Frames?

You should be aware that despite the potential flexibility offered by the use of frames, not everyone on the Web is a big fan of frames. There are as many people who swear at frames as there are who swear by them.

When frames were first introduced, not all browsers could display them as they were intended to be viewed. There have also been problems with some sites that use frames with the frames "carrying over" into other sites. Since any page can be displayed in a frame, it is not uncommon for you to be viewing a site using frames and then attempting to jump to a new site (which is not using frames). Instead of the new site displaying fully in your browser, you may see the new site appear inside one of the frames.
