Link Evaluator is a Firefox extension designed to help users evaluate the availability of online resources linked to from a given Web page. When started, it automatically follows all links on the current page, and assesses the responses of each URL (link).
Link Evaluator examines both the HTTP status code and the page contents returned by each URL, and attempts to distinguish between various results, such as:
authentication failure, and
'incorrect/correct' content for the given URL.
This extension is similar to the Kevin Freitas' Link Checker. Main differences:
1) It has multi-threaded link testing (4 threads)
2) It evaluates the whole page (not only the http response code)
3) Uses the concept of red/green-flag phrases
4) Allows storing customized sets of red/green-flag phrases
5) Has a real-time control/monitor panel where the result of each link-test might be seen
6) Can test inside framesets
7) Has enhanced algorithm for link-coloration
8) Adds "flag-phrases" info in the link tooltips
9) Stores the original tooltips and may reverse to them..
10) Link Evaluator is capable of detecting red- and green-flag phrases that have been embedded in special Web content for testing purposes. This "Link Evaluator-aware" content can contain flag phrases that are to be applied only to specific links or ranges of links.
