The program displays a continuously updated list of URLs which you can sort by different criteria. A full report can be produced at any time. Xenu also allows you to include/exclude certain links from verification. Copyright Snapfiles.com

I use it all the time. 5 stars by oteotd Aug 30, 2011 (Read all my 50 reviews)
I don't know why I did not review this program before. Maybe it was not on Snapfiles when I first started using it(2002). If you want to make sure your website links are correct this is the one. This is not just a so called link checker that tests your external links to make sure they work. It will test every link on your site such as links to images in folders and other content. There are some limitations on checking java based links, but the website explains all of that. Also you can work around the issue by having a test page with links to all of the items normally called from java. If they work you know everything still exists and is in the correct directory. show Review details
Excellent software 5 stars by JURYCOM Jul 09, 2007 (Read all my 43 reviews)
This is excellent software. You do not need to go any further. I tried various other systems and this is by far the bast. show Review details
Must have 4 stars by Ronbur Nov 03, 2005 (Read all my 19 reviews)
Brilliant.You'll be able to make an order in all this URL mess! Prog looks so modest and simple that I really was amazed by quality of report which it produced.Works extremely fast:200 URL for 10 sec.Most important findings are:1)broken links with an explanation about what's happened with them; 2)redirected URLs,which still can get you to the needed website but take longer,'cos it's already not correct address.The only problem is that you'll be overwhelmed by this huge job to correct them.My suggestion: export Bookmarks from browser not all at once but folder by folder to get several HTML files and each time when you go to Internet,you'll ask Xenu to check one of them and then will correct links.Don't forget to save it as .XEN or it'll be difficult to sort the result. show Review details
