Fancy Upload – Ajax file upload for MooTools

Fancy upload is a nice and excellent replacement for the file input field. It uses a flash component called swiff for file upload and other features. But instead of displaying the flash interface, it uses javascript to interact with the flash component and the appearance is fully skinnable using CSS & HTML.

It works on Mootools.
