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.

Yeah, I very much doubt it too. At least I don't see Facebook being interested in the Browser/Brand considering their small market share and poor website compatibility. If anything they'd be more interested in the talent and expertise of employees working at Opera. They be put to work on a brand new Webkit-based browser.
