Free Desktop Link Checker for your Website
How many times you have been very much embarassed in developing a website when a testing team or your client or your end user sends out an email or raises an issue that a specified hyperlink in the website does not work, inspite of the enormous amount of hardwork that you might have put into the development of the same.
Here is a nice tool, which I came across and would like to share with all --> Xenu Link Checker. It is a free software that can check the links in the website and can summarize you all broken links. To an extent it also flags the external links found and warns you of potential mailto: URLs found, which may be vulnerable to spam.
You can download this tool for free from: http://home.snafu.de/tilman/xenulink.html
Perhaps any developer should classify this tool as an essential ingredient in is toolbox.
