For "Web sites as applications", there's the possible SoC from Epiphany.

This would require somebody writing the "Web Accounts" panel, which
would integrate Telepathy accounts, libsocialweb accounts, and possibly
Evolution ones too. My attempts at coercing people on working on that
have so far failed for 3.0.

As Will mentioned, those should be supported through Telepathy already.

That's what the new nautilus-sendto is supposed to do (it supports all
the sites supported by libsocialweb, which is a growing list), but it's
blocking on user accounts setup (as above).

To allow browsing them after the fact, Grilo should be able to use the
accounts information from libsocialweb to get authenticated, and then
applications such as gthumb, shotwell or F-Spot can browse all the
images sources provided by Grilo.

Once we have a system-wide accounts system, sharing links from
applications to websites is fairly straight forward.
