This is the kind of thing I'd do with a separate worker process. You could easily write a python script that listens on an OSC port and grabs a given URL and saves it to a file. It might be something like 10-20 lines of code scraped from myriad examples online. Then send an OSC message back to Pd with the file path or read the file and send a formatted OSC message with the data you want.

A tool like Python is great for this kind of use case as opposed to pure Pd. You can then write a simple shell script to launch the Pd patch and the Python script together to start the project.
