Additional processes "appname Networking"

When checking if the helper app of my app is running I found some odd additional process in the activity viewer:

I’ve never seen such processes before. Does anyone have an idea what those might be?

Xojo 2020r2.1, High Sierra.

Looks to be associated with the HTMLViewer. Likely needed to be added for the enhanced communication between Xojo apps and the renderer in recent versions of Xojo.

WebKit puts rendering and network processes in separate sandboxed helper applications.

Thanks for the information. Going to do a blog post for my curious users.
