The first test

From longlist to shortlist

The shortlist

The first test will result in a shortlist of broken link checkers. The shortlist is based on the longlist of broken link checkers and the following criteria:

Shortlist criteria
  1. The broken link checker is at the longlist
  2. The broken link checker is able to find at least 90% of the clickable (visible) broken links

In practice 11 of the 12 visible links, or 9 (out of 10) broken links when the broken link checker respects robots.txt at the-linked-to-website, at A Different End Of The Internet (ADEOTI) should be detected.

The list below gives the test results (sorted by score). Clicking on the name of the linkchecker gives the shortlist testreport.
