I propose we change flash uploader in administrative console and on Front-End too to be more user friendly and simplify it's interface. For example we could use logic of original code of SWFUpload control: when file is selected via "Browse" button, then it is added under browse button and progress bar is shown near it and upload starts immediately. No huge progress bar dialog with total upload progress is shown. Ideally I would like to upload files same way they are uploaded, when new files are attached to gmail:

[x] Filename [progress bar] Cancel 
[x] - when unchecked, then file is deleted
Filename - filename being attached 
[progress bar] - shown only when upload is in progress 
Cancel - shown only when upload is in progress and allow to cancel it in real time 

Files are uploaded one after another.

  1. I love the idea as well as Gmail interfaces :)

    This would be very neat and useful enhancement for the uploader!

    Are we planning to use some ready solution or need to code one?
