Frames or no frames?
I'm in no way a professionel web developer, but I don't lack general understanding of html programming either. Every time I search for something related to frames/iframes/getting divs to work as a frame, it's almost guaranteed the first comments is about how they're depreciated or are plain evil of sorts. It seems to be a never ending discussion.
However, I'm still wondering - is it better to build a site entirely out of divs etc, and thus having to reload the entire site on every page switch -- OR, is it better to use iframes, or maybe JS to load content into a div, thus only loading whatever content instead of the entire site on page switch?
First option (to avoid frame and frame-like solutions) would also make it extremely time consuming to just make a very small change in the menu etc. Or is there a way around that that I haven't heard of?
What do you prefer and why?

The problem with doing this is that it breaks everything that relies on URLs to function - direct linking, bookmarking, search engine crawling, etc.
This is easily solved a small amount of server side code.

Could you please explain how? Or maybe show me an example?
