So we’re about to go live with the next phase of our project at work, and as part of that we’ve been testing our materials. Part of that is checking for broken links, and this led me to check if there was anything better out there than Xenu, which I’ve been using on Windows for years. Turns out there isn’t, despite Xenu being incredibly long in the tooth and weak on the user interface side of things. If you need a link checker on windows, Xenu is your tool, trust me. Just remember to turn it down a couple of notches – on a fast windows machine, it’s an effective webserver denial of service attacker because it can bounce requests so fast.
