Question to forum members:

Are any of you using link-checker tools on their website(s), for locating any internal and external dead links?

If so, which one(s)?

What are your experiences, in terms of detection accuracy, speed, flexibility and features, ease of use...?

Regards
joerelman

Thanks tripleshift, this W3C linkcheck validator does the job, with plenty of details.

A colleague of mine suggested to take a look as well here:
https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/532/

Less detailed reporting, but I think you'll like it too Wink

WC3 Link Checker is probably what you need. I've been using often and helps a lot monitor external and internal links on pages

For info:

I spent some more time on the issue, and dropped a note to the author of the Firefox LinkChecker Add-on, with a small review and suggestions.

See my today's post at

and my review at
