Opera browser team upset over last Oprah episode

Fans of the Oprah Winfrey show were shedding tears this week after the show’s last episode went to air. But the folks over at Opera were also in mourning – their stream of amusing emails may end. 

It appears that some fans of Oprah Winfrey confused Oprah with Opera, a free web browser with a similar name.

The team at Opera received several emails over the years that were actually meant for the Oprah show. Not really all that useful for a Norwegian software company, but it did provide them with some comic relief.

The messages would erroneously ask the software team questions, complain or open up about their lives.

But now that the show has reached the end of its lifetime, Opera blogger Espen André Øverdahl posted a selection of the 'Best of Oprah mails to Opera" on their website

Here's one:
