Well, it may not be in the notification area (which I guess is what
you're calling the 'systray'), but how about the following, which are
installed by default:

- GNOME clock and the weather applet, which is by default get their
weather data from services for which the source code may not be
- Invest applet gets stock information from Yahoo, for which the source
may not be available

How about all the search providers which come pre-configured in firefox?

How about totem that has YouTube and BBC integration?

And of course, F-Spot, which can upload pictures to Flickr, Picasaweb...
