Opera Software Pocket-lint has a rumour up that Facebook is interested in acquiring Opera to kickstart their own move into the browser market, to compete with Mozilla, Google, and Microsoft. While it would mean much-deserved recognition for Opera, I actually hope such a deal does not go through - for entirely selfish reasons.

I think it's something to do with the way Opera Mobile/Mini's HTTP requests are routed through Opera's servers and "optimized" for the small screen. During that journey there is a wealth of personal data to be mined for advertisers.
