When frames were useful[edit | edit source]

In older HTML, frames were a way to make a section of the webpage constantly visible. It involved multiple pages shown in separate subwindows. Usage of frames has been deprecated and should never be used on websites intended for anything other than legacy systems.

The replacement for frames[edit | edit source]

Frames have been replaced by a combination of Cascading Style Sheets and various web scripting languages, as they keep a more suitable method of keeping or updating content on the screen.
