    "Terrific tool if you have lots of bookmarks"

    June 4, 2011  |   By cd527phd

    Pros

    Very easy to use. I was able to import bookmarks from 8 different browsers without problem and check them minutes. The software allows you to re-order the bookmarks to list dead links first, find duplicates, and see what the link shows.

    Cons

    No mechanism to save all of the book marks in one large HTML file.

    Summary

    A great little tool. I tested nearly 2,000 bookmarks from 8 different browsers (including some much less than popular ones like Wyzo) and the program worked like a charm. I have only found one case where the software did not provide correct error status of a web page. Easy to identify duplicate bookmark entries (a very nice feature), 404 and other error messages, and look at web pages with its own built in browser window (a nice feature). You can turn off the internal browser. The software supports multiple languages for the non native English speaker. Modifying the web check options for how many connections to make, waiting periods for timeouts and number of attempts to make are a breeze to change. An sparse help file is provided, but the program is so basic that you barely need it. One nifty feature in the help file is the list of error codes so if you are not familiar with what a "404" error is you can easily look it up.

    Overall, a great program to have for anyone that uses the Internet and is interested in verifying their bookmarks still work without spending hours manually doing this task.
