I am using the Pepper editor for OS X (see www.versiontracker.com for 
download). It works fine and I like it very much. It reminds me Alpha 
for all its functionality and it offers a lot of interesting 
features. It is largely configurable.

The only problem with Pepper is that it is not well integrated with 
TexShop (i.e. there is no direct command to compile a tex file).
I work doing my editing in Pepper and then dragging the file icon 
>from the window title bar into the icon of TexShop in the doc and 
doing tex compiling and preview.
It is a bit tricky, but it works fine and it is the best I was able to find.
