3. Years ago
When I taught at a computer learning center, I had a coworker who was the resident AOL expert. I was sitting in during one of her AOL classes when she brought up a page that the AOL browser refused to render properly. I told her that all she had to do was minimize the AOL window, open the IE browser and type in the address of the page.

She was shocked and told me "I had no idea I could do that!"

I would imagine a lot of present-day AOL users still don't understand that ultimately, AOL is just a connection to the internet - not the internet itself.
