Google and Facebook haven’t been enjoying a particularly good relationship. The two have been criticising each other for a long time. For Google, the problem lies in the fact that Facebook wouldn’t share its user data with Google, although the social network chooses to do so with other websites. Facebook, on the other hand, doesn’t have any love lost for Google either.


We recently reported Facebook may be entering the realm of browsers world by purchasing Opera and pushing it forth as its own browser. This can essentially make things very interesting since Facebook has a huge say and significance in the tech world with its user base of more than 900 million users.

Now, another interesting move which has been made by Facebook is that it has removed Google Chrome from its list of supported web browsers. Chrome has been there on the list and since Chrome is currently touted as the most efficient and the most widely used browser, it made sense. But now, this fresh move by Facebook seems quite alarming.

Perhaps, Facebook plans to leverage its presence in the social media by discouraging the users from using Chrome and eventually, encouraging them to start using Opera. The list of supported browsers now includes Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox and Opera.

However, if this move is geared towards making Opera a success simply because Facebook may eventually buy it, this sure is a cheap shot by the social network and induces exactly the kind of web closeness that Google has been complaining about for a long time.

    Obviously I dont like it. Dislike! Dislike! FB you are big and have got tons of cash in hand, does not mean you could go against majority of your own user-base.

    Seems like, as Facebook is trying to buy Opera Software and therefore have the Opera as its own proprietary browser (Official Browser), therefore it wants to compete strongly with the Google. Don’t like this type of strategy!! Objection!!!
