Coming late in the game (I was away and just came back), and FWIW
given I haven't (and won't at least for some time) contributed to the
wiki: I disagree with this.
Front ends here, in the sense that TeXShop and iTeXMac (and now
TeXworks, and also Textures which pioneered all of them) are front
ends, refer for TeX to what an IDE is for programming: a sophisticated
environment using multiple windows and a sophisticated GUI to provide
the user with everything's that needed to write TeX document, navigate
between source and output, inspect the logs, debug, etc.
I'm no TextMate user myself, but from what I read here and there it
seems TextMate is a text editor with TeX input help (such as syntax
coloring) and built-in TeX preview (using WebKit), similar to what
BBEdit provides for HTML and CSS. That's nice, but doesn't make
TextMate a proper TeX IDE IMHO.
