Image from store Bookmarks Checker - Remove broken links
Description from store Every day we surf the web. Dozens or hundreds of sites. Some we already know, some we don't... if they are interesting, we bookmark them. Convenient. But after a while we find ourselves with hundreds of bookmarks, and as time goes by some sites you bookmarked, well... died :( So frustrating when you click on a bookmark, expect a site to pop up, but all you get is "404, Page Not Found"! To stay organized check your bookmarks regularly : so you can keep track of your topics and update the visual bookmarks that are no longer valid. With this extension it is quick and simple : batch check your bookmarks, review them, and delete the broken bookmarks that are no longer valid. You can also check if there are duplicated bookmarks (bookmarks that point to the same URL). Here is how it goes : at first your bookmarks are "unchecked" (symbol : empty circle). Click on the empty circle next to CHECK ALL to start scanning your bookmarks (click again if you want to stop) : your bookmarks statuses will change to "success" (symbol : green circle with checkmark) or "timeout" (symbol : black circle with clock) or "error" (symbol : red circle with cross). MENU CHECK ALL : batch check your (unchecked |timeout | error) bookmarks DELETE ALL : delete your (timeout | error) bookmarks. WARNING : NO UNDO VIEW/HIDE : when working on hundreds of bookmarks or more it is handy to wiew or hide (unchecked | success | timeout | error) only the bookmarks you need to focus on. TIMEOUT : the time each bookmark request has to wait before it is tagged as "timeout". Set this parameter to 1 second and the scan will fly... but many sites won't have enough time to respond. You can also click on the status icon on a single favorite link instead of batch checking all your favorite links. NOTES When a bookmark is tagged as "error", there is actually no way to tell what is really going on with the site's server... but it is highly probable that your bookmark's link is dead forever. Bookmarks that get a "timeout" status should be treated with caution, even with a 60 seconds delay... never getting a response does not mean nobody is listening. This extension is not a bookmark manager : you will not be able to add, edit, reorganize bookmarks. Use Chrome's built-in Bookmarks Manager instead. Made with ❤️ by BrowseCraft gang. Stand with Ukraine 💙💛.

  • (2023-09-29) TT Ptit Bouche: Bonjour, Très bonne extension mais le petit bémol, elle ne gère pas les liens dans Speed Dial, dommage !
  • (2023-09-24) Trionis Lux: I would consider this to be adware and harmful to bandwidth. Opens a new tab at random and serves advertising pointing at other apps from the same author.
  • (2023-09-21) Citi Zen: Displays popups for manganum.app constantly. would regard as adware.
  • (2023-07-16) Katzy Baby: It just works. It is easy to use, fast, and reliable. I definitely recommend this bookmark checker as a way to keep your bookmarks up to date. Thanks for making this!
  • (2023-06-27) Pieter Harmse: This was somehow able to open a website (manganum.app) even though I didn't have this extension installed - the page said it was opened by this extension. Clearly some bad behaviour going on. Avoid!
  • (2023-06-27) Aiden Young: Hijacks the browser / opens new tabs with ads about some other browser. One to avoid.
  • (2023-05-08) Mirac Orhan: Çok işime yaradı teşekkürler sık kullanılanları baya bir temizledim
  • (2023-04-29) Steffi Kaizun (Skaizun): Seems to work, but, many of the bookmarks it cited, as being "bad" or defunct, do exist and are "okay." And, when I delete a marked bookmark that is genuinely bad/defunct, it does not display a warning (e.g., "Are you sure you want to delete 'such-and-such' bookmark?"); some may consider that a time-saver, but, accidents happen; at least, make it an option. I like that you can "hide" "good" bookmarks, so that only the alleged "bad" ones are seen, which makes it much easier to scroll through and verify by hand. Some websites that are marked as "bad," simply moved the given page to another location on their site (a frequent problem; webmasters should leave the page with a "redirect" so that apps like this and users don't think the content is gone altogether); certainly not this app's fault. Also, I didn't realize that I shouldn't have had the Chrome bookmarks manager open, though, in hindsight, it makes sense not to have it open while another program (i.e, this app) is accessing it (I wanted to update some links). Now, I don't know whether my hours long search and "approved" deletions through the alleged bad/defect bookmarks were saved or not! (i.e., I have to start all over again!) All-in-all, it worked, with the aforementioned caveats and cautions, especially, not to delete all the alleged bad/defunct bookmarks without checking them, manually!
  • (2023-04-14) Neal Wiser: Doesn't work. It tried. It displayed the structure of a page that looked like it wanted to check the URLs and display some kind of results, but it crashed. Then it keep on crashing. Too bad.
  • (2023-04-14) Samuele gg: 28 marzo 2022: Non funziona più, si apre una pagina vuota con un titolo: << try our new chrome extension with quick access to bookmarks in a vertical layout | Install now for free | >> // March 28, 2022: It doesn't work anymore, it opens a blank page with a title: << try our new chrome extension with quick access to bookmarks in a vertical layout | Install now for free | >> Attualmente: Chrome vers. 112.0.5615.87 (Build ufficiale) (a 64 bit) A me spiace ridare questa valutazione, ma a distanza di più di 1 anno, con Chrome aggiornato, Windows 10 e il problema non è stato risolto. L'applicazione tenta di caricarsi, ma la connessione viene interrotta e appare questo errore <<Uffa! Si è verificato un errore durante la visualizzazione della pagina. Codice di errore: Out of Memory>> // I'm sorry to redo this evaluation, but after more than 1 year, with updated Chrome, Windows 10 the problem has not been solved. The application tries to load, but the connection is interrupted and this error appears << Phew! An error occurred while displaying the page. Error Code: Out of Memory>> Ho trovato un buon programma gratuito con la stessa funzione: AM-DeadLink. // I found a good free program with the same function, AM-DeadLink.
  • (2023-01-30) Beth MacKenzie: used in the past and liked. somehow disappeared from my extension bar and I needed a bookmark checker so I went looking and saw that it was still already installed. I removed it and then re-added the extension, it loaded and then promptly disappeared from the extension bar and I can't get at it to use it. I'll have to find something else to do this task
  • (2023-01-02) Superhiway: Took 25 years to acquire 45k+ useless BM's. But this handy little add-on app really helped me weed out the useless ones. Well they're all useless really... It worked well, systematically checking the viability of each URL inside my Yyuuggee BM archived mess. When it came upon a cluster of Google URLs, Google promptly recognized me as a global threat and flipped the switch off, just refused to cooperate unless I completed a "Captcha" for each inquiry. So I waited for my IP to come off of the brown-list and started again. Now it doesn't load at all. Just says "Install our NEW APP". Don't need all that, but TY anyway.
  • (2022-12-28) Pat MySecret: Refers you to their new extension with a link that is broken. Updated December 16, 2022
  • (2022-12-16) ZOGAgent (Иван): Расширение начало самовольно рассылать спам с открывающимися вкладками. Жаль, неплохое было расширение, придётся удалять.
  • (2022-11-26) Laurent Ongaro: Bravo ! Rempli parfaitement son rôle. Simple, rapide, efficace. De plus le scan des favoris est rapide. Juste une remarque: J'aurais aimé avoir la possibilité de sélectionner plusieurs favoris à la fois (en maintenant CTRL ou SHITF comme cela se fait souvent), plutôt que 1 à 1
  • (2022-11-15) Never More: ok
  • (2022-11-08) Dovlet “StateTM” Rahmanov: Great bookmark checking utility, work as intended.
  • (2022-10-21) Namenloser ELGOOG: Unfortunately this extension let crash Vivaldi immediately when I start this extension.
  • (2022-10-19) Thomas T: great utility, exactly what I needed
  • (2022-10-01) Олег Скворцов: sorry for google translate Works in chrome and its clones (CatsXP, Whole, Cent) quite well. The extension is beautiful. The font is beautiful, the indentation is normal, bookmark management is intuitive. It can be seen that the author applied forces not only to its functionality, but to its appearance p.s. Worked hard on the extension. I thought that the following additions looked good in the extension: - the ability to set a "forced working" mark on the link with the corresponding icon. For example, the page at https://chrome.google.com/webstore/category/extensions (here Chrome extensions) is defined as a non-working page, although it is working and loading normally. It would be convenient to put a special mark (an icon different from others) so that the link is not checked, but is considered working by default. And an additional button to send the link to the author, so that the author can figure out why the false positive is happening. - - the possibility of a more convenient selection of duplicate links. When you have a thousand links in your browser, the same number in a neighboring browser, and you need to find and add different links, it would not hurt to be able to search not only for common links, but also for those that are only in one browser Работает в chrome и его клонах (CatsXP, Whole, Cent) достаточно хорошо. Расширение красивое. Шрифт красивый, отступы в норме, управление закладками интуитивно понятное. Видно что автор приложил силы не только к его функционалу, но к его внешнему виду p.s. Плотно поработал с расширением. Подумал что неплохо в расширении смотрелись следующие дополнения: - возможность установки на ссылке пометки "принудительно рабочая" с соответствующим значком. Например страница по адресу https://chrome.google.com/webstore/category/extensions (здесь дополнения Chrome) определяется как нерабочая страница, хотя она рабочая и грузится нормально. Было бы удобным поставить специальную пометку (значок отличный от других) чтобы ссылка не проверялась, а по умолчанию считалась рабочей. И дополнительную кнопку, чтобы отослать ссылку автору, чтобы автор разобрался почему идет ложное срабатывание. - - возможность более удобного выбора дубликатов ссылок. Когда у тебя в браузере под тысячу ссылок, в соседнем браузере столько же, а тебе нужно найти и добавить отличающиеся ссылки, то не помешала бы возможность искать не только общие ссылки, но и те, которые находятся только в одном браузере
  • (2022-09-20) Nino Mohr: Crashes my browser immediately after clicking on it.
  • (2022-09-16) Curtis Anderson: Overall a good job by the dev. It does the basic job of scanning for timeouts/dead links and you can delete them in bulk. However, the interface is not very intuitive and doesn't seem to follow best practices when it comes to icons and actions. As someone else mentioned, you can scan for duplicates, but then you are forced to manually remove them one at a time. It would be nice to be able to delete empty folders as well, which I bet the dev could figure out :) I think with some UI improvements and tweaking the interactions, while adding some functionality like enabling bulk deleting of duplicates, this would be a 5-star extension (assuming no bugs show up). I added this, ran it, deleted dups, and uninstalled with no issues other than the above mentioned limitations.
  • (2022-09-03) Mysticlady Connie Greco: Wouldn't even load. Kept saying 'out of memory' so I had Task Mgr running and tried to open it again. I was only using 28% memory when I clicked to open the extension. It still wouldn't load. Horrible!
  • (2022-08-27) P.H. Allen: This extension is very fast and very thorough. I think the only thing that I could wish for would be the ability to schedule bookmarks checking, and have the time-out remain where I set it.
  • (2022-08-07) Ladia Zhang: 希望能加一下网页重定向检测
  • (2022-07-21) L Freilich: Thank you so much for helping me cull through 20+years of collected bookmarks? Would be nice to see a dashboard of links processed broken down by a total/dead/time-out/good timer, or some sort of way to seeing just how many links have been processed. Sent a small donation, do the same if it helps you.
  • (2022-07-20) Kevin Arturo Ramirez Zavalza: Works great, it would be great if it also had the possibility to identify removed youtube videos.
  • (2022-07-18) Bito: it must provide a way to delete all duplicates are old/not working bookmarks
  • (2022-06-13) Manish “Manny” Patel: worked great. Cleaned up a lot of baggage I've been carrying around for years.
  • (2022-05-29) Christopher Salisbury: Great extension! Pros: - Works as described. - Works quickly. Cons: - Interface is kind of confusing. The click spots don't look like buttons or links so you don't know to click them at first. The are also very small so it makes you think they are just a legend or something for the results. I think some traditional labeled buttons would help a lot of people know more intuitively how to use this.
  • (2022-05-26) Paul Laidlaw: Probably broken, please fix
  • (2022-03-10) Ahmad Hasan: It's refreshing to see someone create a simple and directly to the point software .. in the middle of the jungle of utter nonsense and completely useless software you stumble upon this elegant Gem .. I wish there is more than 5 stars.
  • (2022-03-05) saeed d: broken, when click extension browser crash and close.
  • (2022-02-19) AnZo: Не работает в Vivaldi 5.1.2567.49 (Stable channel) (64 бита) Dont work Vivaldi 5.1.2567.49 (Stable channel) (64)
  • (2022-02-09) Yoshinori Hashimoto: とてもシンプルで使いやすいいいプラグインです。可能でしたら重複している可能性のあるサイトを表示してくれる機能や直接編集できる機能があると更に便利じゃないかなと思いますが、必要十分な機能で大変便利です。
  • (2022-01-18) Arcady Sheingart: Thank you very much. Great work.
  • (2022-01-14) John Homer: It does exactly what it says. What more could you ask for?
  • (2021-12-20) Panhandle Paint: Perfect, just what I was looking for. Simple and easy.
  • (2021-11-27) RJ Deng: 非常不错,1800个书签,没这个软件都不知道那些过时了
  • (2021-10-22) Toru Shimojima: It really works well and easy to use. Just 1 click to remove all the dead links and remove duplicates.. Just to be sure at the server side, redo 2-3 times if you should. 非常にわかりやすく軽快にリンクを確認して、色分けしてくれます。 その後、死んでるURLをクリック一つで削除できます。重複も一覧で表示してくれるので。消すのをクリックで選んでいくだけです。サーバー側のせいだと思いますが、2-3回実行するといいかもしれません。
  • (2021-09-17) 柏云: 很不错的插件哦
  • (2021-09-16) ALDO MOSSUTO: WORKS VERY WELL!!!
  • (2021-09-14) Jurek Pazurek: There is no option to edit the bookmark from within the application.
  • (2021-08-27) La Su: Work when not so many bookmarks. For more than (about) 20000 bookmarks, it just freezes, refreshing it sometimes displays a short screen then disapears.
  • (2021-08-10) Tereasa Moffett: Between my phone and laptop, I probably had about 300+ bookmarks and It was VERY quick to scan them all! I was very pleased with the speed, the clean UI, and how easy it is to use. It does what it's supposed to!
  • (2021-07-18) Edmir Netto de Araujo: tem que navegar pelas bolinhas, e dá pra deletar os duplicados, o melhor é ir passando o mouse em cima no cabeçalho pra ir descobrindo. Muito bom aplicativo
  • (2021-07-13) arieble: Werkt prima! Wat ik nog mis, is dat ik 1 of meer folders met bookmarks kan selecteren om te checken.
  • (2021-07-05) Will Norris: quick and easy - Cleaned dead links, errors, and lots of duplicates. Thank you.
  • (2021-06-26) Martijn Wismeijer: Works like a charm. No extra fluff, does what it claims to do and does it fast. Essential for all of us who have been collecting bookmarks for decades. :)
  • (2021-06-23) Bluepikachu: 非常好的插件,帮我清理了不少收藏夹地址。

  • (2021-12-26, v:1.3) mark: Unselect for Delete All
    Great tool and thank you for building - but I can't use it yet. I bookmark many URLs that are purposely down from time to time. When I run the scan, can you add the option to select some bookmarks for keeping even though there are errors and/or timeouts?

  • (2020-09-09, v:1.3) Mats Emblad: Duplicate checker and bookmarks organized in folders
    Hello first of thanks for a great little extension which has been very helpful, yes it does take a large memory footprint if you have large bookmarks file and it does timeout very quickly so i would if i could suggest a longer timeout period when it is working. 1. Can you somehow use the extension to check a folder of bookmarks ? as on my machine i have them organized into folders. 2. Can you use the extension to check a saved bookmark file which is in html format ? 3. Is there a reason why it hangs when tying to check duplicates it has been impossible for me to get it to work ? Many thanks for this extension and any answers Regards Mats
  • (2020-08-18, v:1.3) Martin Hauser: Some little suggestions
    At first, many thanks for your great tool. My wishes for the todo-list: - a button to reload the bookmarks - possibility to collaps/expand folders - gray out buttons not nessecary, e.g. Time-Out-Buttons when there is no timed-out object in the list
