This feature is available within the standard Joomla installation  

simple Go to Extensions>Module Manager>then create a new module with requested type: Most Read Content. Name it,and give it a position on that specific page and then select the categories you want to display, and your're done.

That is correct, but what this module-type shows is a LIST of most popular articles. What I am looking for - and maybe ross - is a module that shows the most read article itself on the homepage; and another one that shows the most recent articles. Does anyone know how to do that?

Thanks for answering
