    Apple provides you with a some default bookmarks. If you click the little book on the left side of your Bookmark Bar, you'll see what I'm talking about.

    Those are the websites that you're seeing in the address bar. Nothing to worry about.

    Personally, if I'm going to uninstall iLife apps like that, I do a clean install of the OS. If you're not up for doing that, you could probably just use something like AppZapper, or AppDelete to do it.

    Yes there are tabs in Safari, but you have to enable that option via Safari>Preferences. It's not default behaviour, for some reason.

    garageband also has some sounds and loop files that i believe are not in the same folder as the app itself. they are several gigs so u may want to nix them too.

    /User/Library/Application Support/Garage Band

    I believe. Try the root-level Application Support folder, too. But there is quite a bit of disk space to free up if you remove Garage Band.
