Apple founder Steve Jobs may have wanted the iPad to be free of pornography, but that certainly hasn't stopped users turning to the device's Safari browser to view porn sites.

Safari on the iPhone and iPad is used more than any other mobile browser, according to data from Pornhub, one of the biggest free pornography sites, with 38 million users a day.

Apple's iPad was the most used tablet by quite some margin, with Safari claiming 73 per cent of the porn site's tablet visitors, with Google's Chrome, which is available on the iPad and Android tablets, a distant second used by 13.6 per cent of visitors.

The Android browser built into Google software was third with 7.8 per cent of tablet browsers, leading Amazon's Kindle Fire browser Silk with 4.8 per cent and BlackBerry's Playbook with 0.69 per cent.

Apple's iPhone users are also avid viewers of Pornhub. The smartphone version of Safari claims a 38.2 per cent share of all the porn site smartphone users globally, beating the Android browser, which holds 29.4 per cent.

Chrome, which is available on both Android and the iPhone, holds 18 per cent and Window Phone's Internet Explorer comes in fourth with 2.4 per cent of visits. The Guardian
