After the introduction of HTML5 the multiple file upload without flash script is possible. jQuery File Upload is a nice plugin for handling multiple file uploads with HTML5. For legacy browsers it falls back to an Ajaxed-like iframe-PHP solution.
Multiple files can be selected for upload, a user even be drag ‘n’ dropped from the desktop and the upload process can start automatically or just click the upload button and select multiple files.
A progress bar can display the status and uploads can be canceled anytime.
It is possible to use multiple instances of the plugin in the same page and jQuery File Upload is compatible with any server-side application platform.
You can view the Jquery File Upload Demo.
