Check Favorites is a full-featured solution for maintaining all of the Internet-based links in your Favorites list (bookmarks).  Check Favorites can check multiple links simultaneously and can optionally remove all of the broken links for you.  Check Favorites also supports the ability to export your Favorites in a variety of formats, as well as the ability to extract, check, and export the links contained on any HTML page on your system, or accessible via the Internet (thus acting like a kind of link checker and ripper). 

Checking the links on/from a page on the Internet can be accomplished using Internet Explorer®, through the use of a custom Protocol Handler.  For example, if you are viewing a page in Internet Explorer that contains lots of links, and you would like to be able to verify, rip, or export them, simply go to the Address Bar, and place "checkfavs:" in front of the URL.  It is that simple!  (Note that only static content/pages will be downloaded correctly by Check Favorites.)
