Allowing a frame to act as if it is its own window

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?
