Discussion on: Why are we still using iFrames?

A web dev newbie here. The last time I used iFrame was to make podcasts of a podcasting platform shareable, allowing the content to be easily embedded onto other people’s website. So a particular podcast can be presented with our customised player and our styling, on an creator’s personal website. I guess this is quite typical for such platforms (Soundcloud/Spotify) etc.

I would say one problem being making iFrame safe, without security loopholes open for attacks. One thought that I had the moment I discovered iFrame was, it is really cool - I can potentially make a website simply composed of multiple iFrames, much like those website builders 😂
