Social networking service Facebook has an interest to the world's most popular mobile Web browser Opera Browser. If this happen this is the biggest Acquisition by Giant Social network.
According to report 25 05 2012 pocket-lint; says one of its "trusted sources" revealed that Facebook is trying to buy Opera Software, the company behind the Opera Web browser, a sign that the social-networking company might be looking to launch its own browser.
The move would put Facebook in competition with other tech companies in the browser game -- including Yahoo, which recently launched Axis, and Google, which has already released extensions to integrate its social-networking component, Google +, into its browser.
Pocket-lint speculates that a Facebook browser "would allow you keep up to date with your social life from in-built plug-ins and features on the menu bar."

Opera says it has about 200 million users across all of its platforms.
