Then you want OpenLayers (complete js map tile browser), or possibly
Mapstraction (wraps a whole bunch of js APIs including Google Maps,
OpenLayers/OpenStreetMap, poly9 FreeEarth etc so you don't have to
choose which tiles/features you want ahead of time).

Thanks for the plug! (I work at Stamen and helped port the
Actionscript 2 version of Modest Maps to Actionscript 3, which is also
available in the subversion repository).
As well as www.modestmaps.com
, we're doing our best to support Modest
Maps over here: http://getsatisfaction.com/modestmaps
In particular, that's where to look if you're a Flex person - the
community support for that part is better than the Stamen support (but
feel free to pick our brains about AS3, AS2 and Python for sure).
