Are those the Opera web browser and Pepsi?

Brings up a case where I actually like how FF handles something over IE:

Path to the first image: http://csmres.co.uk/cs.public.upd/article-images/Opera-logo_rev.jpg [csmres.co.uk]

Title of the tab showing the first image, in IE 8:

Title of the tab showing the first image, in FF ESR 10.0.5:

Opera, as a closed-source, for-profit company, shall not be associated with the social collectivist agenda pushed by the Obama administration.

I was thinking today that I prolly should've equated it as B = C - A. As in, I believe I saw the '08 Obama campaign logo first of the three, then the Opera logo, and seeing the Pepsi logo in a commercial on TV the other night made me think of the other two.

Altho further research indicates that I'm late to the party:

* The Obama logo began being designed in late 2006, premiering in Feb 2007.

* The new Pepsi logo began being designed 5 months before being leaked to the media in Oct 2008, officially premiering in ads in Feb 2009.

* The new Opera logo premiered in Aug 2009.

* The Pepsi logo follow-along timing was apparently no coincidence [go.com], with slogans modeled after Obama's too.

* Starting typing a Google search for "new pepsi logo", the 2nd autocomplete entry is "new pepsi logo obama", from plenty of other people having noticed this similarity long before me. Oh well.
