How to Embed an External Webpage Without Using Iframe

how to embed external html file into current html file but without iframe tag

Some alternative solutions to an iframe are:

AJAX - You can use the XMLHttpRequest object to retrieve data and inject it to your page, for example inside a div. Example using jQuery:

 $( "#result" ).load( "ajax/test.html" );

HTML5 Web Components - HTML Imports, part of the Web Components, allows to bundle HTML documents in other HTML documents. That includes HTML, CSS, JavaScript or anything else an .html file can contain. Example:

   <link rel="import" href="">

Some other ideas are:

<object> tag - It defines an embedded object within an HTML document. Can be used fot HTML file and multimedia content like audio, video, applets, ActiveX, PDF and Flash or other plugins).

   <object data="" width="400" height="300" type="text/html">
Alternative Content

<embed> tag - It defines a container for an external application for example a plug-in, in can be also "hacked" and used to display an HTML page.

<embed src="" width=200 height=200 />

Regarding passing HEADER the best solution would be using an AJAX approach, here an example:

url: "",
data: { uname: "test" },
type: "GET",
beforeSend: function(xhr){xhr.setRequestHeader('X-TOKEN', 'xxxxx');},
success: function() { alert('Success!' + authHeader); }

or in this way,

url: "",
data: { uname: "test" },
type: "GET",
headers:{ "X-TOKEN": 'xxxxx'},
success: function() { alert('Success!' + authHeader); }

Issues with how to Embed an External Page Without an Iframe

From my JavaScript console when I try to run that code in Firefox:

Load denied by X-Frame-Options: does not permit cross-origin framing.

Flickr doesn't allow you to put its homepage in a frame (and a frame created by an object element is still a frame).
