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 use Opera

Opera has been my main browser for a very long time. I like it that it is independent and standard compliant. Nowadays hardly any page would have any rendering issues. On Facebook buying Opera, I'm on the fence on this. I'd rather have Opera independent but then again Facebook is hot property right now (Maybe not so hot on Nasdaq), I'd like to see Opera become hot property. For once maybe Opera shall be the glamor child of browsers, who knows.
