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 actually would be okay with this. My browser of choice is Opera, and right now I trust them. But I don't trust Facebook. I'd go back to Chromium and Firefox.

Furthermore, the Opera guys have been the major force behind HTML5, and have always acted against pushes to tailor the spec to the likes of some companies.
