Some sites have complicated parts, largely static (e.g. the navigation
bars). It drives me nuts when they slowly rebuild the whole page every time
because they don't use frames, and if they waste too much of my time I
leave. Is there another way or ways of keeping part of the page unrefreshed
that does not use frames? If not, what's wrong with frames? We are saving
our readers' time.
