I'm just studying mapserver and I follow the discussion in the list, but I can't understand if there is a javascript solution already implemented for viewing and consulting a map (for example, implementation of tools like zoom in and zoom out with boxes, and so on for a better graphical interface). I refer to a Mapserver compliant solution, of course.

maybe it would make sense for you to dig a little into standardisation 
and interoperability. You can basically use any WebGIS or internet GIS 
client to view and query maps from UMN MapServer, if you configure it as 
a web map service as defined in the OGC WMS standard.

For further details you can also have a look at the homepage of the 
Mapbender project http://www.mapbender.org
it contains more information about this WMS implementing mapping client.
