Editors' Review

+

This freeware program helps tame your list of bookmarked sites with a nice set of tools to manage links.

AM-DeadLink's interface is packed with options, but tool tips and a logical layout make it easy to follow. The length of the verification process depends on the size of your Favorites list, but the wait wasn't bad in our tests. You can sort results by any of the columns, which include name, status, URL, and folder categories. You also can delete entries one at a time or by the group.

The Backup option is a welcome safeguard that allows you to easily restore your original list in case you get too delete-happy. You can open links in a new browser window if you want to verify results or investigate those with error codes, but AM-Deadlink also has a handy Internal Preview option that allows you to open the link without leaving the program. You can dress up your bookmarks with the option to download FavIcons, making it easier to distinguish one link from another.

The program supports Internet Explorer, Firefox, Mozilla, and Opera. AM-Deadlink is a solid choice for any user looking for a comprehensive (and no-cost) way to manage bookmarks.

"Uncompatible with Chrome and HTML-files"

November 13, 2009  |  By SineDubio

 |  Version: AM-DeadLink 3.3

Pros

Very intuative interface
Nice dublicate sorting function

Cons

Does not currently work with Google Chrome
Can work directly with (non-Chrome) browsers or bookmark files directly
That is great but HTML-files are not supported
Slow

Summary

Wanted to sort out dublicates from years of bookmarking history
Since AM-Deadlink does not support Chrome, I had to export it into a HTML file (no other file options exists)
Then AM-Deadlink cannot work with the file directly so I had to import that in IE7
NOW I could open AM-Deadlink and sort out duplicates. There was also a great option to mark all duplicates but one, so to easy erase them. But unfortunately, this operation takes time (approx. 5-6 sek per hundred deletes) so when I tried to do this with all at one (3500 bookmarks total) the process locked.
After have sortet all duplicates by hand, helped by the finding duplicates function, the IE7 exported bookmark file now won't import in Chrome...

Updated on Nov 14, 2009

Found a solution to the above:
Choose Firefox as your program choice
I do not have it installed so I got to choose HTML-file and took the exported Chrome HTML -ile
Now I sorted out duplicates easy AND FAST! Using my regular computer instead of my notepad. Done!
Great program! An explicit HTML-choice should be added with next update. Thx.

"Does not work with Mozilla Freezefox"

November 03, 2009  |  By Vanillaman

 |  Version: AM-DeadLink 3.3

Pros

It has problems with Freezefox complicated, bloated and time consuming bookmarking system. However, it works really well with the much simpler IE Favourites system and the other browsers.

Cons

As usual Mozilla Freezefox makes program difficult to use, only because they want you to use their own.

Summary

Ok with other browsers, but not Firefox.

"Wow, that was easy."

October 18, 2009  |  By zlugx

 |  Version: AM-DeadLink 3.3

Pros

Nice, free, quick little program that gets the job done fast. I was able to check all the 404's before deleting and it was 100% on. Nice job!

Cons

Not really a con, per se, since the Firefox 3 workaround is given, but a direct-edit option for Firefox would be nice.

Summary

Does one thing, and does it really well. And for free to boot!

"Easy to use; minor foibles"

August 29, 2009  |  By skaizun

 |  Version: AM-DeadLink 3.3

Pros

It was pretty much automatic, with only subtle nuances to figure out. I used it only on IE 7.0, so far, but that's all I really need. It separates errors according to the web page result (i.e., 404 (not found), etc), which is a nice touch.

Cons

It indicated some bookmarks as having been redirected, but the result URL matched the bookmark, so I presume that the webpage defaulted to something without changing the URL (minor issue).

Summary

It has a nice "change current bookmark to currently opened page's URL" (which it does in its own browser, but can be opened to a new window), but it would have been nicer if the program had an option to "change all" or "change selected" to whatever it found, automatically, rather than having to do so manually, which can be pretty tedious with the over 900 bookmarks that I have, at least 25% of which had something wrong with them. Having said that, I eliminated many dead URLs (web searches can always find something similar, when I need it), and updated a lot, which, I probably wouldn't have noticed because I hadn't accessed them in a while, but it's nice to know that they're up-to-date. Netscape 4.5 had a similar functionality, but it was much slower and didn't give reasons for it not finding the bookmarks. This is a very nice utility, which I'll probably only use every other year or so, but it's nice to know that it works as advertised!

"I've loved this product for many years"

May 31, 2009  |  By embrya

 |  Version: AM-DeadLink 3.3

Pros

Great utility for background checking of bookmarks.

Cons

Doesn't always correctly report status of links. That being said it does have @ a 99% success rate so i'm not too upset about that.

Summary

Great, small utility for checking bookmarks!

"Really Easy To Use"

October 30, 2008  |  By methadvocate

 |  Version: AM-DeadLink 3.3

Pros

Handles a huge number of bookmarks-my own collection has 5 different sets of bookmarks, the smallest file having approximately 840 bookmarks. The program is easy to use no matter which browser. It's a breeze to sort, check, fix, and convert links.

Cons

Must Individually edit the "file not found" links, instead of the program automatically checking the main link to the root URL.

Summary

I used an old version of this program many years ago and did not like it because of difficulty of use. They have made this program extremely user-friendly with a lot of easy AND advanced options. I have made this my only bookmark manager program and would recommend AM-DeadLink 3.3 software to anyone at any technical user level.
