The Chrome browser, which has more than 3 million monthly active users, is not far behind, according to the analytics firm ComScore.
But on iOS, Google’s Safari offers a fairly open policy, ComScore says.
For those who don’t want to risk privacy, Chrome users are also among the top consumers of apps, with a median of 10,500 apps per user.
Apple users, however, are not among the biggest users of apps in the Google browser.
Google’s iOS privacy policies also aren’t as open as Safari, though the Safari team has a few tweaks that may help make it better.

Privacy policies are generally based on an app’s usage history, which allows users to see how many times the app has been used and what content is being accessed.
The data is then used to customize privacy policies for the app, but that data is often used only for tracking purposes.
For Apple, the data collected is only used to inform the app about which sites a user visits.
For Google, the app uses that data to personalize ads and to help improve the user experience.
Both apps, however are open to the public.
“I think this is a very strong statement on privacy and the impact it has on users,” ComScore director of research Eric Osterholm told Ars.
“We see a lot of things that are really, really good in Safari and really, very, very good in Chrome.”
Osterheim said he thinks the iOS and Android privacy policies are “the most open” in the industry.
The average user is able to see the information that an app collects and what kind of data it is used for.
The more people use the same apps, the more data they can see.
“Users can see how much of their data is being used, how much they’re tracking, and what their privacy preferences are,” Osterheimer said.
“And that’s really useful.”
For iOS, Comscore reports that Android users are more than three times as likely to access content that’s not from an app, and two-thirds more likely to use an app that has a tracking cookie.

The next least popular platform, Microsoft’s Windows Phone, is followed closely to Apple’s Windows, followed again by iOS, and Android.
In total, about 7.3 million apps are used on iOS and about 1.4 million on Android.
While iOS has a large number of privacy-sensitive features like Apple’s Mail, Google Chrome, and Safari, there are also privacy features like the app’s notification tray and the ability to set privacy preferences.
“What we really want to see is apps like the ones that Google is developing being more transparent in how they collect and use user data,” OSTERHEM said.
