A window can display multiple, independently scrollable frames on a single screen, each with its own distinct URL. These frames are created using the FRAME tag inside a FRAMESET tag. A series of frames makes up a page. Each frame can point to different URLs and be targeted by other URLs, all within the same page.

The Frame object is provided a convenience for referring to the objects that constitute frames. However, JavaScript actually represents a frame using a window object. Every Frame object is a window object, and has all the methods and properties of a window object. However, a window that is a frame differs slightly from a top-level window.

See window for complete information on frames.
