IFRAMEs galore?

 

Somebody's gone overboard with IFRAME usage as this page shows! Is this how one would go about implementing web parts!

IframesGalore50%

Points to ponder:

  • Are so many IFRAMES a good idea? What are the alternatives available?
  • Did you test on a dial-up, poor quality line lately?
  • Are you handling exceptions/server responses properly in your code? 
  • Did you test using the tools at http://www.w3.org/QA/Tools/

Cross-domain requests, cookie trust issues, session management issues...Does anyone even bother for the client nowadays? With such usage of IFRAMES, I am inclined to think negative...
