AM-DeadLink v4.7 Updated

webfork on 2 Apr 2017
  • 5MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 7 Apr 2015
  • Suggested by xephyr69

AM-DeadLink is a tool to detect dead links from URLs listed in a variety of files formats including HTML, tab and comma-separated files (CSV), and Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, Opera bookmarks/favorites.

WARNING: the developer recommends deleting dead links manually within the browser interface and not inside AM-DeadLink. As the program is no longer developed and bookmark/favorite management has changed over time, using the program's automatic deletion may cause problems.

A bad piece of news. Even more- the AM-DeadLink history page has been removed and cannot be viewed only in Archive.Org- https://web.archive.org/web/20150316124157/http://aignes.com/deadlink_history.htm

@smaragdus
No idea what other changes have been made in version 4.7. The help file also doesn't include a what's new section.

Xenu's Link Sleuth v1.3.8

webfork on 8 Nov 2014

Xenu's Link Sleuth checks websites for broken links. Verification is done on "normal" HREF links, as well as images, frames, plug-ins, backgrounds, local image maps, style sheets, scripts, and java applets. It displays a continuously updated list of URLs which you can sort by various criteria. A report can be produced at any time.

What's new? Major improvements:

  • check css @import statements within <STYLE>...</STYLE>
    check url() elements within <STYLE>...</STYLE>
    check url() element within STYLE=
  • parse css files similar to <STYLE>...</STYLE>
Minor improvements:
  • sort "broken page-local links" section in report
  • url property dialog now resizeable
  • mailto with empty rest => "mailto:", not "mailto:@".
  • mailto:name%40host.com => mailto:name@host.com
  • all mailto: URLs of a host with successful DNS lookup are set to "skip type"
  • dito also for previously failed mailto: URLs of that successful looked up host
  • light green color for "mail host ok", which replaces text "skip type" for mailto:
  • renamed "maximum level" to "maximum depth"
  • GraphViz only for "ok" links
Misc:
  • changed link counting method, now in AddUrl
  • clean possible memory leaks when finishing; FreeLibrary() for DNSAPI.DLL
  • changed toolbars slightly, preparations for VS2010
  • for VS2010, expand application class with virtual INI functions because I hate the registry
  • "#" as error (not in public release)
  • DLL security: fully qualified path for LoadLibrary()
Bug fixes:
  • Lower case in check for .gif, .png etc
  • corrected bug in change from 25.5.2010 "set recent URL list to 100 instead of 10"
  • correct bug about CCriticalSection usage for ServerMap and CharsetMap
  • fix for false alert in VS2010 buffer overflow check

I just downloaded this and have run checks on a couple domains, but as soon as it's done checking, the whole program shuts down, so I can't save, export, etc. Anyone know about this?

Doesnt handle proxies well. Only uses default proxy. Should be able to specify proxy in application.

Comment above is in relation to its portability. The application functions perfect for its purpose...
