HTML <noframes> tag

Updated: 05/08/2017 by Computer Hope

HTML noframes tagWhen writing in HTML, the <noframes> tag was used as a backup tag for browsers that did not support the <frame> element. More specifically, it was useful for linking a non-frameset version of a web page or letting the user know that their browser doesn't support frames.

Note: The <noframes> tag can contain all the HTML elements that you find inside the <body> of a page, and it must be nested within a <frameset> element.

Note: <noframes> is effectively obsolete because all modern browsers support frames. Also, the use of frames has been deprecated in HTML 5.

Example code

<frameset cols="25%,25%,50%">
<frame src="frame1.htm">
<frame src="frame2.htm">
<frame src="frame3c.htm"> <noframes>Sorry, your browser does not support frames.</noframes>
</frameset>
