HTML noframes Tag: Main Tips

  • HTML noframes tag was used as a fallback for browsers that did not support the <frame> element.
  • It had to be placed within the <frameset> element.
  • In HTML5, frames are not supported. <frame>, <frameset> and <noframes> have been made obsolete.

Usage of HTML <noframes> Tags

Before it was deprecated, you could have used HTML <noframes> tags to wrap fallback content for the browsers which did not support the <frame> tag:

Example
<frameset cols="300, *">
  <frame src="frame_a.htm">
  <frame src="frame_b.htm">
    <noframes>
      <body>Frames element is not supported by this browser.</body>
    </noframes>
  </frame>
  </frame>
</frameset>

Usually, it was used in one of these two ways:

  • To inform the user their browser does not support frames
  • To present an alternative page version with similar functionalities available

Tip: in HTML5, frames are not supported - however, you may use <iframe> as an alternative.
