14 Best HTML5 jQuery File Upload Scripts

jQuery AJAX improve your html5 website functionality with minimum code and effort. HTML5 websites are gaining much interest among web developers these days so creating new functional websites is important to have an edge over the competition. jQuery has multi-browser support so integrating ajax code with jQuery is now very easy. Ajax will load all the scripts asynchronously in the background to make client side interaction without any page reloads. This is the reason why jQuery ajax became so popular in the past few years. If you are unaware of where ajax is being used then examples are Facebook, Google, youtube etc.

jQuery Ajax File Upload scripts can be used in a php or asp.net page as they have cross platform support. Download websites require huge number of files to be uploaded either by the registered member or by the webmaster himself. Dribbble and deviantart are such sites which let you upload your design elements to their websites where others can easily download it. Uploading files to website manually via Ftp is not simple, that is why jQuery Ajax implementation in HTML became important. Just add the script code  into the HTML page and you will see a beautiful a addon letting users to select files for upload.

Choosing the correct file upload script for a particular website depends solely on the website usage. Some scripts to be precise will let you drag and drop files from desktop to the website drop section of the script you have included. The upload will start instantly when you drop the files on to the addon widget in some scripts. Others will let you choose specific files to upload and click submit button to start upload  as many love this. The upload status with progress bar are shown nicely when a file or multiple files are being uploaded to the server. The progress bar  can be styled according to your theme if you like.
