Netflix 5 percent rule

”Simple trumps complete” – a 5% feature (used by less than 5% of all users) is a distraction for all the other users, and is better removed, unless its really critical (a small number of users do need to cancel service, for example).

I find it really interesting idea. Don’t focus on anything that only 5% or less of your customers use.
