    [news=http://www.opera.com/img/operalogo.gif]Opera has denied the latest takeover rumor spreading across the Internet, saying that it has not had approaches from Microsoft or anyone else.

    Rumors surfaced on Friday that Microsoft is close to completing a takeover offer for the Norwegian browser vendor, having outbid Google.

    "Our phones have been ringing off the hook," a representative for Opera said Friday. "But it's not true. We have not been bought, and we have not received any offers. It's just a rumor, like the Google rumor last week."

    I like it too 'cause it's the fastest but I have had one problem with it displaying certain pages once and a blue moon and if it starts being more than that, I'm going back to IE.

    I want error free surfing. That why I don't use Firefox now.
    Silly bitch, your weapons cannot harm me. Don't you know who I am? I'm the Juggernaut, Bitchhhh!

    Opera is horrible at rendering <fieldset> and its <legend>.
    But I don't wanna slander it too much, *points to flag* Har Har Har
    Im sure they would never allow themselves to be bought out by M$, the whole reason why they made that browser was so it could be a viable alternative to Spyware Explorer...

    even though i dont use it i wouldnt want it to be bought out by MS. Taking out the competition like that is bad.

    BTW what does MS get by having people use IE? They dont make any money off of it.

    i hope they never buy opera, cause then i'd have to uninstall it. opera's great the way it is, though it does have its flaws. hopefully now that it's free there'll be some more adoption of it. i think firefox is just too slow, but i love the extensions.
