No Microsoft takeover, says Opera

By Derek Sooman on December 26, 2005, 6:52 AM
Opera is denying rumours that Microsoft is attempting to take it over. The company claims rumours that Microsoft is buying it out are unfounded. The denials were prompted by rumours spreading across the Net that a takeover is in place.

"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."
