I have parity install on my Mac, even though I removed it via application folder. It's still running in the background. How can I remove it completely from my computer?
My localhost 8080 keeps routing to parity.

Here is the uninstall script for Parity on Macs from https://github.com/ethcore/parity/blob/master/mac/uninstall-parity.sh
#!/bin/bash if [[ "$SUDO_USER" == "" ]] ; then echo "This script requires elevated privileges." sudo $0 exit; fi PLIST=~/Library/LaunchAgents/io.parity.ethereum.plist su $SUDO_USER -c "launchctl stop io.parity.ethereum" su $SUDO_USER -c "launchctl unload $PLIST" rm -f /usr/local/libexec/parity /usr/local/libexec/uninstall-parity.sh /usr/local/bin/ethstore $PLIST
You can try searching for the uninstall script with the filename
uninstall-parity.shon your Mac and try running it, or just try executing the instructions manually.
To manually stop the Parity daemon:
sudo launchctl stop io.parity.ethereum
To remove the autostarting of the Parity daemon:
sudo launchctl unload ~/Library/LaunchAgents/io.parity.ethereum.plist
To uninstall Parity, execute the script that is installed on your computer.
