Frames in GUI Automation for Web

Does GUI Spy and GUI Recorder support frames? GUI Spy toolbar has the Frames icon, should I use this option to switch frames?

Yes, GUI Spy and GUI Recorder support frames; frame switching is automatic.
Frame tree button should only be used in case if spy is not able to extract/highlight elements from particular frame.
If you switch to frame, spying on that will start automatically. However, to be able to spy on rest of the document select Main page from tree; additionally, manually add the Web Switch Frame step with the Locate By Default option. As soon as you select another frame spying from first frame stops.
