Facebook to get it’s own Browser?

Popular rumour circulating the web is that Facebook is reportedly eyeing a takeover of desktop, tablet and Smartphone browser maker Opera Software.

Opera Browser offer a fast web browsing experience optimized for any mobile phone or touch-screen tablet. It also has Mac and PC versions.

An acquisition of Opera could give Facebook a major boost if they decide to enter the browser wars with Microsoft, Google, Apple and Mozilla.

About 270 million people use Opera browsers every month, the software company claims. Furthermore, more than 168 million people used the Opera Mini browser in March 2012, with a total of 117 billion pages served.

The reason for the alleged acquisition would be Facebook positioning itself as a major player in the next generation of the web as ‘Web 2.0’ loses its mantle to the web’s next big phase ‘Mobile’.
