Is this a test?

Maybe it is a test, because I am still getting "framed". :(

Look in your preferences, to see, if the "Frame results" are checked or not.

Good catch Chndru.

I never set my prefs, and for some reason it defaulted to frames. Good thing.

Losing the frames is a positive move.

I'm still seeing no-frames. Perhaps you have to tweak your preferences?

Interesting that in the "Tips for Setting Your Preferences" each option has an explaination except the Frames option.

I posted a comment on frames in another forum: [webmasterworld.com...]

Here it is again:
Also, as some in WebmasterWorld have noticed recently, in the U.S. we are in the process of removing the "AnswerFrame", as it's historically been called here. The complication is that the frame contains a search box, and many people find this box location very useful, saving them a click back to our site. In terms of "selfish motives" with the Frame, we run no ads on this frame and mere page views (for the sake of it) are of little to no value to our business. On the other hand, from an overall experience perspective, more people would prefer this tool to be set to default "off" rather than "on" in their user preferences, so we are moving to that model. In between we're trying to keep it live for people who have used it in the past and presumably find it useful.
