If one wants emacs, one can use emacs -- there are several  
implementations available for OS X.  I'd prefer that TeXShop Keep It  
Sane and Simple (tm).

There: one lonely vote against tabs.  Plenty of other fancy, more  
configurable editors (with tabs, sidebars, sheets, HUDs, etc.) exist  
for those who truly need them.  In my mind, one big benefit of  
TeXShop is its elegant minimalism that makes it quick and easy for  
mere mortals to use fairly effectively.
