As I told everyone before, I am terrible about emailing myself links because I find something interesting that I want to read in more depth later and simply don’t have the time to check into it right away. I am also terrible about bookmarking things and need to clean out my favorite’s box. I have my limit of 2500 bookmarks there. Naturally, many of those are writing and publishing links. I’m sure I have some duplicates as well as some very old pages that no longer work.
The reason I’m posting this is because I wanted to share a FREE program for getting rid of broken links and duplicates in your favorites list. I’m sure I’m not the only compulsive person here that is compelled to save things.
I am quite a fan of the digital whiz, Kim Komando. This link came from her site and is trusted and tested by her to be virus and malware free. If you use McAfee virus protection on your computer, you may see a message that says this software contains a malicious code, but she has checked it and it’s safe.
This program works with every major browser including Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, and Opera. The name of the program is AM-Deadlink. To download, click the gray button or the mirror. It downloads quickly and you’ll be able to select your browser from the drop-down menu. Click the green check mark to detect dead or broken links.
You can select bookmarks and delete them using the red X button. There is also a button for detecting duplicates.
This is nifty and saves a lot of time. Here is the link: aignes.com
