Thanks for testing. Launching two browsers is expected--the second
browser is the one that hosts the browser extension that meek uses to
make its HTTP requests (see https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/ticket/11183
and https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/wiki/doc/meek#HowtolooklikebrowserHTTPS).
But the fact that it shows two icons on OS X is a bug, one I don't know
how to fix yet (https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/ticket/11429).

google.com and evintl-oscp.verisign.com are expected. That's because all
your traffic is being routed through Google's App Engine servers. I'm
surprised at calendar.google.com though. how did you get those names?
Through reverse DNS? Google can you different frontend IPs and maybe one
of them reverse-resolves to calendar.google.com.
