Next company to acquire Opera?

December 23, 2005

Given the recent surge in acquisition rumors (first Google, and now Microsoft), I thought it would be nice to see which company Opera Watch readers think will be in the next rumor claiming that it will purchase Opera.

  • Yahoo (Yahoopera)
  • Apple (Appera)
  • Nokia (Nopera)
  • McDonald’s (McDopera)
  • Other

Vote here.

    It says the following when I’m trying to vote:/

    The ‘Access Denied’ issue should be fixed now. Sorry.

    I think you suggested names could use a little work, Daniel. For starters, McDopera brings to mind drugs (ie. dope), so simple McOpera would probably be best and more consistent with their current McNaming scheme. And wouldn’t it be much more catchy for Apple to name their now product “Opple”? Of course, that Apple already has a competent Web browser with a nice name kind of makes it hard to think of something. 🙂

    I’m voting for Nokia, in any case. 🙂

    P.S. the poll is closed 😦

    None of the above. I strongly think, Google will surprise us with an unexpected purchase of Opera. It will have a fast, sleek, small normal browser, plus a mini browser for mobile gadgets like cell phones.

    I can just see the face of Uncle Bill when he reads about this in the news. He just lost a near purchase to a 5% stake in AOL to Google.

    Just my two cents on this interesting subject.

    P.S. Yes, poll is closed.

    I probably should have pointed out that the poll is open to Opera Community members only. It’s free to sign up.

    surely apple would have called it iPera? 🙂

    I guess Nokia…….. creating a Nordic IT powerhouse……. and Opera has strongest presence on mobile devices!
