Free Link Checker 4.3
Free Link Checker - Free Link Checker is a desktop freeware tool that does broken link check. You specify a starting URL for checking and the link validator software finds dead links, invalid HTTP redirects and other problems on a website or a single web page. A broken link report is provided after validation. The search for broken links may be recursive, thus validating the whole web site for obsolete and dead HTML links.
The program includes HTML links spider and broken link analyzer. Free Link Checker provides various settings for broken link check, displaying invalid links report, tracking progress, setting up authentication (username and password) and proxy. It is possible to analyse links from the selected domain only, get only a summary of broken links, or receive a full report on dead or obsolete URLs (originating from a href, img, etc. HTML tags), invalid HTTP redirects, directory redirects, forbidden links, etc.
Try Free Link Checker -- a simple but powerful FREE broken link tool for a web site!

Also tried out the XENU's Link Sleuth application, which has a better look and is faster.

I am experiencing difficulties accessing Gmail and I used your tool to try to identify and resolve the problem. The answer I received was: "error 404- the link does not exist". In other words I am at exactly the same point I was before downloading your program.

Reporting is indeterminate
Unfortunately, I wasn't able to produce a report that was useful. Even after setting various reporting options regarding recursion and levels of nesting, the output was a simple one or two liner suggesting a broken link, but no details or URL for the broken link.

Free Link Checker
The only problem that I ran into was that I couldn't print the report to see where the problems were. The whole idea behind checking the links is to know what needs to be fixed.....

Great but didn't tell me where the dead link.
Ok but wouldn't tell me where the dead links were coming from internally in my site so was no use to me - that was why I used it.

Best Free Link Checker
Thank you so much for making your link checker a freeware tool. It is comprehensive and easy to use, and I really appreciate that it is a tool I can have on my desktop as opposed to the w3c checker that is very similar, but in a browser window.
