Review:

Link Evaluator is an extension for Firefox to check the HTTP status code and the page contents returned by each URL.

After installing the extension, open a website in Firefox, then go to Tools > Link Evaluator > Evaluate Links. This will start checking the content of that webpage. After a link on the page is checked, it is highlighted with a color indicating the test result--green for full success, yellow for part and red for no success. Hovering over a link will indicate the HTTP returned and any 'green-flag' or 'red-flag' found.

You can also make use of the Link Evaluator Control Panel to show the test results of each link in real time, including url, page size, HTTP status code and status message, and the red/green flag found on the page.

This extension for Firefox works well, but it only checks one page at a time. However it's useful when you want to do a quick check.
