Hot on the heels of a rumoured Facebook Phone comes speculation the social media giant will acquire the Opera web browser.
Facebook is planning to take on Google, Apple and Mozilla in the browser arena with Opera, and given its popularity among mobile users, it would certainly make sense for Facebook to build its proposed phone around the Opera browsing experience.
A well-integrated and polished Facebook browser could be beneficial to heavy users – although there might be a backlash from the Opera faithful.
Facebook is yet to comment on the reports.
