Building a Custom File Uploading Input System using jQuery

As websites expand content-sharing and collaboration features, users are electing to upload more and more files—photos, videos, documents, even secure data—via web applications to store them in “cloud”-based systems rather than locally on their computers. The HTML input element with a type=”file” attribute gives web developers a native control to handle this file upload functionality. But browsers offer almost no control over how file inputs are presented visually, making it difficult to incorporate them into a uniform interface design.
