Iframes are useful to loading external pages into an existing page and avoiding any style conflicts, using an iframe is as simple as putting an iframe tag and it’s src. I really wanted the height to be as tall as my viewable screen without setting a fixed height or using javascript. Thanks to a css property called vh (viewport height) it’s a simple process.

First create an iframe:

<iframe src="http://domain.com" frameborder="0"></iframe>

Then style the iframe in css:

iframe { display:block; width:100%; height:100vh; } ```
