Looking for Ajax "Attach a file" / "Upload a file" Code to be used as part of contact form

So basically, instead of seeing the traditional field and the browse files button, you will only see

Attach a File:         add file

And if you click on "add file" it allows you to pick a desktop file the usual way and the name of the file will appear and the page will show like this (without page refresh):

Attach a File:      filename.doc | remove |
Attach a File:       add file

just trying to avoid the usual boring browse file button and the text field to the left.
