Yes, not free, but MondoSearch does show results in framesets. I'm
not sure of the exact details, but I think they track when they're in
a frameset and store the results before they follow the frame links.
When a user clicks on a result item, they route results back through
the search server to locate the associated frames before going to the
original server and getting the data. It's pretty intense.
