Very good - works simply and well.
Would be nice if you could configure to also flag 301s.
Simple, but working awesome. I couldn't get the "Checked selected links" working, but still that doesn't take off my five stars. Good job!
It would be great if it could also check links to files shares on local network, other than just skipping.
Otherwise 5 stars for me.
Really nice tool! It helped to find errors on my web-site that I was even aware of.
To developer: it would be great if it was en option to have some kind of pop-up window that shows after the check with statistics. Because sometimes it's tricky to look for broken link on a long and complicated page, even if they are highlighted.
.. And thank you so much for this tool!
Great little tool. Very simple, checks the whole page accurately. It has a few options but no complicated bells and whistles. If you want a simple link checking tool for your web page, this will do the job nicely.
Thanks, very useful.
But I've not 'Check Links in Selected' option when a portion of page is selected (and contains some links).
Firefox version: 3.6.3
Works like a charm man, many thanks for your effort
Das Add-on ist klasse, endlich muss man nicht mehr mühselig alle Links prüfen.
Das Add On übernimmt die Arbeit und zeigt defekte Links sofort an.
Für mich eine echte Arbeitserleichterung.
Combined with a site-wide link checker to find offending pages, this add-on really helps zero in on the link quickly.
It's cool, but it doesn't check multiple pages. Otherwise I'd give this 5 stars!
For latest version visit author's website!
as seen in earlier reviews... or just update the file yourself. Learn how. It's easy.
I installed this add-on a few minutes ago, and it is already saving me so much time. I check links on dozens of pages. This checks them in a fraction of the time it takes with W3's link checker.
I am using 0.6.5 for 3.5.5 fx. Here are some suggestions.
1) Option to check only external or internal or both links.
2) Option to highlight only invalid and Misc.
Please update for 3.5.5
Cool add-on, now I don't worry about wasting time on dead links. Your add-on makes a contribution for firefox to become the best browser.
A little suggestion: you could add a hotkey to "Check page links". Maybe Ctrl + C or Ctrl + V should be OK and It will be better If user can specify the hotkey.
This is a great tool. I've been using it for quite a while. The color highlighting makes it easy to check a page quickly.
There is a 0.6.4 version (for testing) that was uploaded to addons.mozilla.org on June 30th, that works well with Firefox 3.5.*.
Dock: really, where? I can't find it using the URL given above. All I can find is 0.6.3...
Just a quick follow-up that I should have checked out before my last post. Version 0.6.4, which IS Firefox 3.5 compatible, is available from Kevin's extension page. THANKS KEV!
This is one of the handiest tools in my entire web developer arsenal! With no external resource requirements, this lightweight tool helps me check links on the fly or via reports on any page we have. Whether intranet or specially authenticated sites, LinkChecker is GREAT.
HOWEVER... I surely hope that Kevin updates the tool for Firefox 3.5. I don't want to lose it.
This is a ranking of the TOOL!
This is NOT a ranking of the DEVELOPER!
The developer may be a 5 star person, I don't know. I don't know the person.
The tool still gets only 1 star as it doesn't work.
Please update for more stars.
@ryandigweed 0.6.4 is pending approval since June 30. be careful uni-starring developers. they have feelings too!
PLEASE UPDATE !
Please update link checker. I definitely would have not downloaded this new version if I knew I was losing link checker.
I made a quick fix for the linkchecker.
Works with FF 3.5 and it contains some i18n fixes.

It is downloadable for testing here: http://dev.rezso.net/firefox/linkchecker-0.6.3.1.xpi
