Our Review:

AM-DeadLink scans your browser bookmark file for dead links or duplicate links. Using this program is much faster and easier than manually checking all of your bookmarks. If you have a very large collection of bookmarks, and some of them are rarely visited, then removing links that are "dead" makes the resultant smaller collection of valid bookmarks easier to navigate.

After running this on my bookmarks, I now have a much leaner set of favorites that are easier to find, and the peace of mind knowing that all the links actually work. In addition, you can download/update favicons for Internet Explorer and Opera bookmarks.

AM-DeadLink now has full Unicode support, and supports bookmarks from Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome and Opera. It will also check HTML files, and URLs from tab delimited and comma separated text files.

AM-DeadLink also supports command-line switches to check links in HTML files (e.g. from within a HTML File editor).

You can opt for installing a portable version of AM-DeadLink during setup. The latest version supports new versions of Windows including Windows 10, however, directly altering or deleting bookmarks from browsers is no longer supported with this tool.
