    Wow. Now that would be a big blow to Firefox. Of course, someone is going to disagree with me.

    I doubt they would discontinue IE in favor of Opera. They would just use technology gained from the purchase.

    Even though they are denying it, that doesn't mean any thing.

    Opera Sux, I would hope that M$ doesn't waste their time on it. Then if M$ does gett it, they would know how to program it right. The ones who program it now don't know what they are doing. There are still probs with it and they refuse to fix them ..

    I had seen speculation/analyst bullcrap that this might happen. Thank god it's not true though. Opera is becoming a better browser with each release. I even prefer it over Fx on the Win32 platform now.

    Maybe the other rumour that Google are to acquire Opera may come true instead.
