Thanks to everyone for their suggestions!

I've written a function to use X frames when I follow another branch:

(defun my-new-info-tab ()
  (with-current-buffer (clone-buffer)
    (display-buffer-pop-up-frame (current-buffer) nil)))

Is there a way to make it so that the frame used to display a branch
deletes itself when the cloned buffer it has been created for is killed?
