Pocket Lint heard from one of its sources that Facebook is looking to expand into the browser market. The source claims the social networking giant is interested in acquiring browser maker Opera Software to achieve this goal.
The move - which would no doubt send shivers of panic through Google - although unlikely to affect Chrome's continued growth in the short term, would see the two tech giants battle it out on your desktop and mobile for web surfing as well as social networking.
Opera already has a very good mobile browser, which has seen strong growth in the two years it has been available. And Facebook's buying the company would save it having to build a browser from scratch.
