PROPRIETARY SOFTWARE --
This probably shouldn't come as much of a surprise, but the Norway-based Opera Software is considering a sale of the company with multiple parties supposedly being interested in this web-focused Oslo outfit.

Reuters is reporting tonight that since Opera missed their Q2 revenue forecasts and cut their full-year guidance, they're now considering a sale of the company. A strategic review of the situation is expected to conclude by the end of the year. There's supposedly interest in Opera from "a number of parties."

This isn't really too surprising with Opera's browser market-share continuing to degrade and other factors. More details as they become available.
