Well, it's just a blog rumor to get traffic and link I presume! The article is so tiny!
|I spoke to an Opera official about your claim, he outright denied it. |

Wouldn't make sense, since they have hired many core-Firefox developers.

Transliteration of the post of Mr Chappez ..hope he doesn't mind .. ( I have tried to stay as close as possible to his precise sense ..and so it's a bit dry and wordy in english ..his french was more "breezy"..anyway for those members who dont read french )..
"According to a usually very well informed source, Google is on the point of buying the Opera browser.
Even if for the moment this information is unconfirmed, such a move by Google would be a possible response to Microsoft if Microsoft decide to integrate their own search engine into their browser in a more efficacious manner than currently is the case.
At the moment Microsofts search engine is already in IE , but hidden in the address bar ,which means no one uses it , and it only returns results when one misstypes whilst entering an address.
For IE7 Microsoft could let themselves be inspired by Firefox which integrates the search engine Google in a more ergonomic manner.
However if this were the case , what could Google do to avoid losing in one fell swoop a significant part of "searches"?
They could launch their own browser ..hence the "Opera" hypothesis ..Opera being by the way already very well implanted in smartphones..."
trans ends ..

Yeah indeed, he says "un tel move de Google" (for such move).
Who cares. WW is off of search engine anyway :)

re networks.silicon.com "story" the the word "fist" is entirely their invention ..nowhere in the original french text is there a word that can be construed to mean "fist" ..babel fish translation?
BTW I just noticed I made a spelling error above in my transliteration .."ususally" ( my excuse my french keyboard and my non french typing habits as per usual ..can a mod correct it ..merci ;)

I noticed that too ;)
I wonder if this story will end up as anything but rumour. It would be quite interesting. I wonder how many opera users would stop using it?
