Facebook isn’t dumping Chrome for Opera


I think that Facebook buying the Opera Web browser would be a silly move. You know what would be an even dumber move though? Dropping the increasingly popular Google Chrome in favor of Opera as a recommended Web browser.

Never-the-less, that’s exactly what a story in Neowin claims. I quote, “It is beginning to look like Facebook’s management are changing their recommendations towards certain browsers. As of today, Facebook’s “unsupported web browsers” page has removed Google’s web browser, Chrome, and replaced it with Opera.”

Leaving aside the convoluted grammar, the story makes it clear that it’s claiming that Facebook has dropped Chrome as a most favored Web browser for Opera. There’s only one problem with this report. It’s not true.
