There is an excellent little link checker available for Firefox called LinkChecker. (You'll need to scroll down the link page to find it). It will check the links of any given page to see if they still work, and uses colours to indicate those that do/don't. Only slight irritation is that if you try and follow a link to check it yourself, when you return to the page you were checking you have to start all over again. That aside, it's a super little utility and worth having if you need to check that your links work correctly.

Comments:
Just remember that LinkChecker checks that the link isn't going to a dead page. If the site has set up a "Your link is not available, please use our search" sort of page for errors, then LinkChecker returns that page as "good". It's not going where you thought it was, but it is going somewhere.
