> My takeaway from this is to NEVER use an app that uses Webkit

You're talking about WebKit on android, which was ported there by Google.

The original WebKit (as WebKit, not khtml) browser (Safari) doesn't leak all that information, so my take away would be not to trust a company obsessed with collecting private information and pushing all things into a browser, to have the best track record when it comes to protecting your privacy.
