  • AirServer,
  • Karabiner,
  • Alfred 3,
  • a Chrome app_mode_loader,
  • the Android File Transfer Agent,
  • Dropbox, Divvy,
  • Expandrive,
  • Chrome itself,
  • Soundflower,
  • an AX88179 USB GBit Ethernet adapter driver,
  • Steam Drivers,
  • /Library/PrivilegedHelperTools/,
  • the Steam ipcserver,
  • the Expandrive Helper,
  • the Skype Helper,
  • the OnePasswordNativeMessageHost,
  • Expandrive exfs,
  • iStatMenus and
  • the iStatMenus Agents and Helpers,
  • Steamclean,
  • the GoogleSoftwareUpdateAgent,
  • Tunnelblick,
  • and finally an ethcheck Firmware checker.

So much Crap being loaded.
