I am the same. One thing I do which has reduced the pain is to use the
'Edit with Emacs' Chrome extension. At least now, when I'm required to
provide text input, I can do so from within Emacs.

There is also an Emacs mode for stackOverflow/stackExchange sites. I've
not used it for a while, but it wasn't too bad and would allow you to do
your SO searching/browsing/replying from within Emacs. Main drawback was
the auth2 stuff - you have to use the web browser to get a login token.

I do miss the old newsgroups. I use to very much enjoy starting my day
with a Gnus+NNTP session! I've never gotten use to the whole IM stuff
and things like slack, but I never really got into IRC either.
