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.

Opera Mobile/Mini [...] the gateway that allows the mobile apps to function

But Opera Mobile doesn't depend on Opera servers. Sure, it can use them - say, for compression on a slow connection, just like desktop Opera Turbo function - but it doesn't require their presence, it's a full browser.

(anyway, I doubt any buyout; if there's something behind rumors, I suspect just more of how Opera ASA does business in... mobile)
