Easy to install easy to use and fast. I ran a test on just over 5000 links which took 14 mins. Not only that, you can check your website links on your local drive and your Netscape or IE favourites.The software is safe for your computer system. When you install it, it does not change any of your system settings nor update any of your system files and, unlike some other software, can't cause your system to crash.

A "Must have" for webmasters.
