IF all else failed, then iFrame as your last resort.

while iframes were accepted to a certain extent by some in the past, these days it is probably frowned upon -  if not from a security point of view but also a UX should be enough reasons to avoid using it

Open gmail, count iframes.  I count 9, there are probably more :)  admittedly they're not really using them in the way you probably mean, but I'd say they still have their place. Like most things in the world of web development you just have to use them where they make sense, and be careful with them.

iframes are pretty much the devil.

Mostly because of the potential disconnect between the address in the address bar and where the content comes from.

i.e. website is www.totallylegit.com - iframe is from www.stealyourbankdetails.ru - no way to tell. iFrames are also used to spread malware on legit sites for the same reason.

bad bad bad.
