Image from store Bookmarks Checker
Description from store Hello ! 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stay organized check your bookmarks regularly : so you can keep track of your topics and update the bookmarks that are no longer valid. With this extension it is quick and simple : batch check your bookmarks, review them, and delete the bookmarks that are no longer valid.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 bookmark instead of batch checking all your bookmarks. 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. If you find my work useful, please help my out and put a dime in the box : paypal.me/MatthiasAinsworth Oh, and please take a minute or two to rate this extension and maybe write a comment to let me and other users know if it is worth... Thank you !

  • (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 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
  • (2022-05-22) Neil Day: Sooo good! Very fast.
  • (2022-05-10) Alani B: did not work at all... installed then disappeared

  • (2022-03-28) samuele gg: Non funziona più, si apre una pagina vuota. It no longer works, a blank page open.
  • (2022-03-26) Julio Cesar: I really need this, but it doesn't load on latest Chrome. I got 32gb of RAM and after it shows a blank screen for a while it just says out of memory...
  • (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.

  • (2022-02-09) 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. :)

  • (2021-06-05) jiyu18: great!
  • (2021-06-01) Peter Niepel: I have no idea how to start this thing. I installed it and it disappeared. There is no icon in the extension tool bar. No right mouse click menu, nothing, How do you use this extension? I have no idea.

  • (2021-04-26) Alan DJIGSTAR: свое дело делает, еще бы найти точно такое же дополнение, но для FAVICON
  • (2021-04-18) Alexandre Lopes: Excellent extension. It gets the job done, but the extension missed some of my duplicates that "Bookmarks clean up" extension found.
  • (2021-04-06) 左宇峰: 简单好用,非常棒的插件
  • (2021-02-19) 葉宗霖: easy to use
  • (2021-02-12) David Demian: Exactly what I needed without all the bull. Will use again.
  • (2021-02-09) Alan Soh: This is a very simple yet awesome functionality. It helps me to check all bookmarks which I have had accumulated for the past 10/20 years in Chrome in one go, and noted all those which have become invalid with a red cross mark. I did a cross-check - those marked "invalid" are really not usable anymore. Using the dustbin icon, I can clear those invalid bookmarks at the same time. This is very convenient and easy to use. Thank you for this useful extension!

  • (2021-01-07) Daria Morgendorffer: L'extension marche au top mais la page n'arrêtait pas de se fermer en me précisant qu'il y avait un risque de facturation.
  • (2020-12-30) YanZhen Wei: 非常好用,可以检查网站还在不在,也可以检查重复的

  • (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?
  • (2021-07-27, v:1.3) Patrick Marechal: politique de confidentialité

    Why does it mark EVERY Chrome Web Store entry as BAD? These are normal, valid pages. Even your own Extension page on the Web Site get marked as bad. Please explain?
  • (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
