Welcome.

A WEBLOC file is a Mac OS X website shortcut typically generated by the Safari web browser. It contains the URL of a webpage and is created by dragging the website icon next to the address field, to the desktop or another folder on the hard drive.

WEBLOC files are similar to .URL files created by other programs.

You can discard these or use any of the common Browser apps to open a Webloc file (Safari, Chrome, Firefox, Opera - all, I think can open these.)
