(Insider Report) – Here comes a surprise. In a recent conversation with one of our insiders at Microsoft, the source revealed that Microsoft Corp., the world’s largest software maker, has acquired Opera Software, makers of the Opera browser. The insider reported that both Microsoft and Google were trying to bid on Opera, but in the end, the software maker took the lead.
Il solito Marco segnala una possibile smentita:
Our phones have been ringing off the hook,” said a spokesman for Opera. “But it’s not true. We have not been bought, and we have not received any offers. It’s just a rumour, like the Google rumour last week.
Anche sul sito di Cooltechzone.com si sono affrettati a pubblicare un aggiornamento:
Opera recently confirmed that Microsoft has not approached the browser maker and there is no active acquistion deal between the two companies currently.
