With Firefox 4 landing soon and webGL support increasing ( chrome,
safari .. maybe even IE someday ) ... it would probably be best to use
It looks like that was hacked up fairly quickly ... but someone would
have to improve its support across modern browsers and possibly have a
fall-back to flash mechanisms for viewers.
I will definitely put looking at that in my long term todo list. I think
it would make for an interesting plugin for the sequencer efforts as
well, ie including pans on panoramas as section of a documentary.

After a quick look I got the impression that
krpano is currently state
of the art but you may know another program.
krpano is not an option, it is non-free.
A alternative would be panosalado2, but last time I checked it had
numerous problems, such as
* lack of documentation
* the need to re-project images into a cube panorama format before the
multiresolution modus works (needed to get an improvement for large
images over the current viewer)
* lack of cylindrical projection support
* lack of cut-off spherical pano support
The last two points mean that approximately 99.9999% of the panos on
commons will NOT work with Panosalado.
Believe me I looked hard for an alternative, and all I got was hours of grief!
