Are there any other well known cron alternative services to manage large amounts of automated tasks, such as curl'ng a url at a certain frequency?

The only one I have found is cronless.com

Explaining what you don't like about cron would help us give a more helpful answer. –  EEAA May 18 '11 at 23:53

You might want to take a look at launchd. It's created by apple to replace all the startup & task services (init, cron, etc) on macos but there are ports for Linux & BSD.
