Unobstrusive hints in the UI

Another example of a nice UI: The Forbes website shows small percentage bars in white on grey background in the “most read” list. The colour scheme is very unobtrusive, barely noticeable, yet very helpful when people discover the feature. I like this because it is a help for people who see the feature, and not an impediment for those who don’t.
