Limitations

Excellent, free broken link checker

Pros
  • Checks links automatically
  • Analysis can be customized
  • Generates HTML report
Cons
  • Takes a long time

Xenu's Link Sleuth (TM) checks Web sites for broken links. Link verification is done on "normal" links, images, frames, plug-ins, backgrounds, local image maps, style sheets, scripts and java applets. It displays a continously updated list of URLs which you can sort by different criteria. A report can be produced at any time.Additional features:

  • Simple, no-frills user-interface
  • Can re-check broken links (useful for temporary network errors)
  • Simple report format, can also be e-mailed
  • Executable file smaller than 1MB
  • Supports SSL websites ("https:// ")
  • Partial testing of ftp and gopher sites
  • Detects and reports redirected URLs
  • Site map

I have used Xenu's Link Sleuth for years. It is a highly efficient program that checks the links on a website and reports back if they are 'broken' that means they result in a '404.' There is nothing more annoying for a site visitor - if they get frustrated they may never re-visit.

The program itself has a small footprint of 836k. There are options to exclude and include specific links or URLs as well as many other options.

Pros
  • It is very fast
  • It is advert and adware free.
  • It can generate an HTML report which can be saved
Cons
  • The menus could be a little more intuitive
  • At first glance it may appear that there is too much information generated
