Most of this is admittedly not open-source, but it is what I can think
of off the top of my head for web/gui cluster front end tools.
I think Platform explored a web front end for LSF after they killed off
the xlsf tools. The tool I have seen lately that I would be more
interested in seeing more of is Auger from the Jefferson Laboratory in
Norfolk. Technically it's not a web front end, because it's a java
front end tool, but it looks nice in any case. Most of the true web
front ends for cluster jobs that I have seen are application specific
portals. NCSA has some examples, and PNL has a nice distributed web
front end for computation chemistry applications, as well.
