Multiple File Upload options for a c# .net web based project

I am looking for viable solutions to give a GMail like multiple file upload capability. A couple of things that need to take into consideration is the easy of integration and compatibility. We need to add this feature to our application to improve the end users ability to upload multiple files at once. This is for a business product so we need to be able to use it in several applications.
We do not mind paying for it but if the cost is two high we will make our own. If we end up going the manual route to make a application which platform would be suggested. I am thinking either flash or java.

Any input or experience with this is appreciated, please don't just submit google search results as I can do that myself.

Thanks

Well, for what it's worth, GMail is using a Flash based file uploader with javascript callbacks to enable the progress box. Could be wrong but it's fairly likely that they are using this:

Hi,

There is a control for multiple files upload on code project using flash. You can use it:

There is also an ASyncFileUploader in the AjaxControlToolkit that you could use.

as far as i know this is a limitation from all browsers.

work arounds include using a java applet, or better use an SWF as mentioned by carl_tawn

a recommended 3rd party is telerik multi upload
