I'm currently using Chrome 27.

After looking through the settings options (Settings → Privacy → Content settings) I see that I can disable just about anything... except iframes.

Is there any easy way to do this? Is it also possible in IE and Firefox?

Why would you disable iframes? – gronostaj Jun 16 '13 at 15:20
There's a particular site which has useful content for me, however the iframe content / advertisements contains contains content that i'd rather not see. So i only need this on a temporary basis. – Danield Jun 16 '13 at 15:23
So you actually want to block iframes on a specific site? – gronostaj Jun 16 '13 at 15:26
well yes, maybe a couple of sites – Danield Jun 16 '13 at 15:27
You should be able to create an AdBlock filter for that. – gronostaj Jun 16 '13 at 15:28

I ended up using the extension "stylish"

It lets you target particular urls and then you can add custom styles for that website.

Here's a post in Stack overflow which illustrates this.

So in my case I added the following custom css for the particular website i needed to target

  display: none;

... and it works great!

What’s the point in doing this? The javascript in iframes will still execute. – kinokijuf Jun 17 '13 at 8:39
As i mentioned in the comments on the question, I just want to hide the content of the iframes on a particular website. It's not a security concern here – Danield Jun 17 '13 at 8:42
There’s no point in doing this – kinokijuf Jun 17 '13 at 8:47
It is indeed useful for hiding the iframe. Thanks for the solution. – adam0404 Apr 23 '14 at 8:08
The point is, when an ugly iframe is overlapping the main content on a poorly designed website. Don't question the usefulness, just that there's one person who needs it! – Vijay Nov 7 '14 at 7:18
