Ajax file upload

Do you plan on having a site or sites that allow for the upload of files?  Having such a feature is not a bad idea, as it allows for the sharing of content in a simplified way.  This tutorial shows you how to integrate an Ajax file upload system on your site using PHP and JavaScript.

The tutorial's author admits that the security limitations of JavaScript hinder the ability to create a pure AJAX file upload system, and that most AJAX upload systems employ third party tools to get the job done.  Still, this particular tutorial definitely helps you create a smooth file uploading function that works well and looks good in the process, thanks to an animated progress bar.
