Everyday Usability 31: watch your reading progress

A friend send me a link to this discussion round. Whereas most of the comments were not so interesting the site included a cool feature which I would like to see applied for many articles of  online newspapers. The designers put a little box in the lower right edge of the screen which tells the user the total number of comments and the number of the comment they are currently reading. You do not even need to read the number. The progress is presented also as a colored status bar in the background of the number, similar to the progress-bar that many of you know from the download process.

I like to read articles in the Newyorker. However, they are quite lengthy. It would be nice if they would make a progress-bar on the lower edge of the screen. It would help me to time my reading better => e.g. 20/100%.

nice feature progress of reading
