There's a setting you have to remove in the package.json file:  "chromium-args": "--proxy-server=",

I put that there because currently any network functionality happens from 
the Pd process.  The GUI only makes a tcp connection to the Pd process and 
that's it.
If you remove that line then you'll be able to make network requests from the 
GUI.  Also, Chromium will make whatever connections it thinks it needs to fetch 
whitelists and whatever else it does to try to keep your machine from becoming 
a solider in somebody's botnet.
