A tool we all need ;)
« on: Wed 22 Oct 2008 21:12:10 »
Wouldn't you like to be able to see at a glance whether a page full of links is dead or alive without having to test the links manually???
With this little FireFox extension/script you can do just that (on more than just rapidshare, works on MU and MS links and others)!  Your links end up looking like this

This has got to be the best thing I ever added to FireFox!
You'll need to install Greasemonkey first to be able to use it, and it ONLY works in FireFox, but its a huge time saver ... especially for forum staff trying to keep dead links to a minimum!  I've been using this script for almost a year now and love it!
If you hover your mouse over a live link you even get the size of the file! Brilliant!
Code: [Select]
Greasemonkey
https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/748
Code: [Select]
AIO Links Checker

BTW - I know this isn't in the right section, but just didn't know which section was the right one LOL

Not the same thing mate - with that one you have to leave the page, and it only checks RS links ... this might explain better ;)

I have been using it since NiteOwl first posted it.  It now seems impossible to live without - just about the most useful add-on of all!!
