The new TeXmaker 1.7 (released today) just got better:


There is a new Messages window that is a summary of the log file for  
errors, warnings and bad boxes, very useful if you have a master file  
and included files, because it lists the file with the error or  
warning, the type of error, the line and the message.

If said file is open, clicking in the line number makes the cursor  
jump to it.

With a good sized monitor, you can have in the same column the source  
window, the find window (not find/change, just find), the messages  
window and the log window.

The ``Quick Build'' option lets you define a series of commands; say,  
latex, latex, bibtex, makeindex, latex, view pdf (this isn't new to  
this version).

For me, TeXShop is indispensable because of the forward/inverse PDF  
search, but for people who like a beautiful graphic interface, I  
think TeXmaker is *the* application.
