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.

"Misleading at best"

December 06, 2014  |  By Hey_888

 |  Version: AM-DeadLink 4.6

Pros

Is fast and finds links

Cons

Link searches are not accurate. Many valid links appear as invalid.
No duplicate links feature/ability
The biggest problem with this app is that you can NOT delete dead links with Chrome, Firefox, or Internet Explorer browsers.

Summary

App is effectively useless, Not sure what it's doing in the background on my system but I am uninstalling with Revo Uninstaller.

"Dead wrong on dead links"

March 13, 2014  |  By Analytikat

 |  Version: AM-DeadLink 4.6

Pros

Easily found duplicate links
Easy to use
Built-in browser to check links or open with external browser

Cons

Reports live links as dead links.
Repeated checking of supposed dead links shows that they are not.
Very slow application. Takes about an hour to scan through 2000 bookmarks.
Cannot move column headings or choose which to show

Summary

Not reliable software for checking dead links. I don't know if it's because my computer is too slow for it, and it gives up. But when I click on the links that AM-Deadlink reports as dead, the page loads instantly.
I will be looking for another product that actually does its job.

"foistware - avoid it!"

May 26, 2013  |  By doug1296

 |  Version: AM-DeadLink 4.6

Pros

none - can't even delete invalid bookmarks for Firefox w/in the program.

Cons

This program installed PC optimizer, toolbars, hijacked my browser and other junk. There were no screens or options to choose the foistware - it just installed automatically. I'm no IT dummy and know all about foistware and how to avoid it. Not so much with this program as it installed everything w/o even a hint until I opened my browsers. It also disconnected my chrome account, installed toolbars in IE & Firefox. This is a piece of garbage and should be avoided at all costs.

Summary

STAY AWAY!

"Best organization tool for favorite bookmarks"

April 17, 2013  |  By methadvocate

 |  Version: AM-DeadLink 4.6

Pros

Easy to use, easy to understand. I've been using this programs for so many years, I think Its been since the very first version of the software. It's basic, but it has all the things I need to manage huge volumes of information. My "main" favorites file has over 4000 entries and this software enables me to keep all of those bookmarks up-to-date, and free of uneccessary "filler info". The software quickly checks every URL for status (if it's still a valid url, what type of error code the url send back-a 404 or 500, etc). This also have a preview panel built right in that can be turned on or off, to be able to see what website comes up when you're checking the sites that return error codes, or checking sites for any reason. There is so much this software does, and it's done in a very clean user interface. There's just too many perks to mention. Oh-of course it works for all major browsers, and you can export/import files very easily. Super program indeed.

Cons

I'd like to have the option to view the bookmarks in a tree navigation. The way you would see the bookmarks laid out in the windows file manager, for example. And then a "toggle" switch to flip that view back and forth.

"My NOD32 Antivirus 5.2.9.1. recognise it like an attack"

March 07, 2013  |  By Vgoto

 |  Version: AM-DeadLink 4.6

Pros

I didn't use it because I can't save it on my computer. The description is in Cons. Thanks

Cons

Please, can you review this software, because I wanted to use it to find my dead links from bookmarks, but my ESET NOD32 Antivirus version 5.2.9.1. the newest data base 8092, recognise it like "Win32/DownloadAdmin.A.Gen potentially unwanted application" . Can you ask the creator Martin Aignesberger what to do about it? Thanks in advance ;)

"Slow! Slow! Slow! A Snail on Quaaludes."

January 20, 2013  |  By lvwolfman--2008

 |  Version: AM-DeadLink 4.6

Pros

Reads bookmarks from a number of popular browsers as well as HTML files.
Allows you to check for and delete duplicates
Allows you to verify that the sites are still good

Cons

Can't actually DO anything with the bookmarks in the HTML files.
So slow to delete duplicates from Chrome that I don't think it is really working
I haven't gotten to where I can check for bad links yet so can't comment on it.

Summary

I'm used to Compass which does all of the above and FAST. I'm used to BookMacster on OS X which does all of the above and FAST. This is NOT fast.

I loaded Chrome with 27,000 bookmarks on an I5 machine running Windows 8 with 4GB of ram and a 100GB solid state hard drive. It took maybe 10 minutes for this program to find the duplicates. For the past two hours it has been "deleting" them. I'd think it wasn't working but it is chewing up 14% of the CPU and 100MB of ram. Windows task manager also says that it is not responding. Well I knew that. But the CPU and RAM usage vary so it does appear to be doing something. I just don't know what.

All I can say is that I'm glad that I don't have to pay for this software. I think that I'm going to cancel the task, uninstall the program and do the work on my Mac. It'll be a LOT faster.
