Apple has done that too often for my taste. I really dislike the  
metal look and they spread it way past what the HIG said to use.

On another note... At least on the US keyboard layout... the Source-> 
(Un)Indent commands are not bound to any keyboard shortcuts. You can  
get Indent using Cmd-] and Unindent with Cmd-[ but those commands  
seem to be executing commands in the framework rather than the menu  
commands. The menu commands are much nicer because you need not  
select the line to indent it; you need only have the cursor placed  
somewhere on the line you wish to indent.
I've now bound those two menu commands to Ctl-Cmd-[ and Ctl-Cmd-] so  
I can quickly use the nice menu indents.

I believe you can do that via System Preferences->Keyboard & Mouse- 
 >Keyboard Shortcuts so you need not play with TeXShop's guts.

Good Luck,
