Frames Overview - HTML

At their simplest level, frames provide multiple separately scrollable areas within one user window. Many non-Web applications use the concept of separate panes to help their organization and controls. For example, the Windows Explorer, using a left pane to display folders and the right pane to display files within the selected folder.

As you have no doubt noticed, the different panes in applications such as Windows Explorer can be manipulated separately from other panes. The same is true for documents utilizing frames.
