People Mistake Opera Browser for Oprah Winfrey

The Queen of television, that would be Oprah Winfrey, has done her last show. It's the end of an era for afternoon TV.

Oprah, the self-made success story she is, has left her mark on various different areas of the media industry. She's virtually a household name in the U.S.

Opera, on the other hand, is an alternative browser that runs on a multitude of desktop and mobile platforms. Opera isn't quite a household name in the same way that Firefox is, but it can hang with all the big boys.

Believe it or not, some people get confused between Oprah and Opera. As a send off to the Queen of TV, Opera has posted some of its funnier emails from people who emailed the Norwegian company looking for Oprah.

Check them all out here.

Marcus Yam served as Tom's Hardware News Director during 2008-2014. He entered tech media in the late 90s and fondly remembers the days when an overclocked Celeron 300A and Voodoo2 SLI comprised a gaming rig with the ultimate street cred.

    Talk about a huge run on sentence. Since when did they stop teaching kids about punctuation in school?

    Reminds me of the story about one of the MLB's best pitchers, Mel Faimey, who years ago was pitching a perfect game until the 9th inning, when he came out and proceeded to walk 6 batters in a row and thus lose the game.

    Afterwards, the opposing team passed by the bullpen on the way to the locker room when one of them spotted a large number of empty beer cans.

    "Look everybody - this must be the beer than made Mel Faimey walk us"!

    :D :D
