Why I Hate Frames
Frames. A common response -- arghh!
What follows is an example of why I hate frames (in principle), in two easy steps.
I must say that I don't dislike frames per se, I just see very few sites where they actually add value to the visitor. A few come to mind, but most are internal intranet applications. Frames can work fine for small amounts of discrete information; the key here is discrete (small blocks, not Miss Manners).
Linking to lots of other docs, within or outside a site, is a frames challenge.
Just ask Wired.com.
