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.

What a reduculous idea would be for users to have "site-dedicated" browser. Total nonsense. And it doesn't matter how juge is the community focused around that site.

Now, I can perfectly understand motives and intensions: Facebook's incentive for world internet domination, but that just doesn't sound right. It reminds me of Netscape and AOL. People thought that Netscape/AOL *is the actual internet*.
