I just launched a new Web site not too long ago. One of the annoyances of setting up a new Web site is checking all the links to make sure they all go somewhere. This Firefox extension takes all that hard work out of the equation.

LinkChecker does just what the name implies; it checks links. Here is what the developer has to say about it.

Check webpage links at a glance with simple color coding. Ditch those massive listings of bad links that provide no context and add LinkChecker to your arsenal of web development tools today.

For all the Web site designers out there I say that right along with the Web Developer Firefox extension, you need LinkChecker as well. It is an excellent addition to any webmaster’s tool belt.

This Firefox extension is for versions 1.0 and up of the browser. If you want to download it and try it out for yourself, you can do so at the Mozilla Update Web site.
