Why does MetaEditor need to connect to the internet?

maximo MetaEditor still works fine when I block it's internet connection, and even allows forum links to run via default browser. So why does it need itself to connect to the internet while you are editing your code ?
To access other services, such as the MQL5 Cloud Protector, MQL5 Cloud Storage, Public projects, CodeBase, Articles, CoPilot, etc.
