Does localhost refer to the IP address of my computer?

After pasting the localhost URL into the browser, open the python jupyter notebook even without an internet environment.
Can I edit/execute code?

Since the meaning of localhost has not been checked, I asked a question here.

    localhostis tied to an IP address (like first person pronoun) that represents itself on any PC127.0.0.1.

    If jupyternotebook is running, you can connect to localhost with a browser on your PC alone.

    "Local" means "not via network". The synonym is "remote" (= the other side of the network).
