Question about web page headers

Hi - I want to have a header that doesn't change from page to page.  If it was back in the 90's I'd use frames, but I'm wondering if there is something new out there because I definitely don't want to have the animation reload on every page change.  Is this possible?  If so, what would I use?

Thanks!

just use include files, one file for your markup, and then include it on every one of your pages:

Yes, you can load content of your page with Ajax and simulate next page using pushState()

By "header" do you mean a consistent visual element, like the dark cyan banner at the top of this page?

That's correct.  If it was EE I would want it to not reload the EE blue bar header every time a different page is loaded.

Most browsers are smart enough about unchanged files like images, CSS and JS.  They know not to reload the documents (unless the client has explicitly told the browser to always fetch new content).  You can serve the same content twice and unless the client has set the browser to always fetch, the content will be reused by the browser, from its own cache, not refetched from the server.

The commonly expressed objective for this goes something like, "I want my web pages to be fast, so I do not want to waste time downloading extraneous content."  Given consistent internet connection speeds, that's not usually much of a problem.  When a web page is slow, the issue almost always can be found in the I/O subsystem, and in web applications that is almost always the data base.

Can you tell us a little about the motivations behind your question?  Perhaps we can show you ways that others have found to do away with similar problems.

I have a cool flash animation but I don't want the animation to reload on every page as it will get quite annoying.  I might end up just putting it on the login screen (it's a company extranet app) and then use the static images on each subsequent page.
