Security issues (at least on Mozilla) block one page from accessing the frames
of another page (so one spying site couldn't access your bank account info, for
instance). It would be nice if the onload event would bubble up so you could at
least know when the page inside the frame reloaded so you'd know when they
clicked on a link and then could put the new URL in your "URL bar". I don't
know of any way to do this besides using Mozilla-specific XUL, java, or Flash.
Its a shame, I know.

I currently have a business requirement to support the ability for users to
browse websites "within" our web application.  At first glance, we thought
frames would allow us to accomplish this.  We could simply create a browser
frame, and allow the "user" to enter in the url they wished to visit.  But,
after some experimentation, we found that it didn't work as nicely as first
perceived.  Many of the webpages the users want to view do things like break
frames, reference non-existing frames, think that they're the "top" frame, etc…
which make our frameset idea problematic.

Has anyone else had this type of business requirement, or does anyone know of a
way of accomplishing this?
