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.
