this kind of redeems the late 90s on the internet for me

The </frameset> HTML tag was introduced in 1996 with version 2.0 of Netscape browser. This tag made it possible to divide a browser window into parts and show several HTML documents at once. A lot has been written about this most controversial tag in the history of markup languages. Already in the year it was created, usability experts announced that it breaks fundamental rules of hypertext and navigation. It was hated in the end of the 1990's and neglected in the new millennium.

</frameset> is an exhibition of net art that uses the maddening tag to create some whimsical & interesting pages. My favorite in the set is probably Esra Bayrak's Tangible Closet.
