Can Cordova InAppBrowser be opened inside a frame or smaller window?

I wish to open an in app browser using cordova in my ionic app. But I don’t want it to open fullscreen, instead I want to show some controls above & below that usual tabs will be visible. Thus, what I basically need is a browser in a smaller window so that it looks like part of my application.
Is this possible? Is there any other way to open external link inside my app?

Alright, so I just checked, I can use iframe. That kinda solves my issue but iframes are not that great when it comes to performance. Is there any other better way of doing this?
