Critical Section

still no frames

Do you ever use my One Year Ago feature?  I do, all the time.  In fact, it might be my favorite thing about blogging; I can see where I was at a year ago.  I'm really looking forward to looking back two years, or ten!  How the time flies...

Anyway, a year ago today I finally got rid of frames.  I like frames, that is, I like the user experience of viewing a website inside frames.  There are some problems with frames - permalinks, titles, compatibility - but I figured out how to deal with them.  And when I started I was quite proud of them :)

But, hardly anyone else liked them.  I kept getting feedback that they were a bad thing.  And they are certainly harder, there's a whole bunch of stuff you have to do on this side to deal with them.  So last November I got rid of them, and I haven't really looked back.
