I want to find broken links in any specific page on the web so that I can ask the developers to replace that link with my link. But I don't know how to find broken links. I tried some google chrome extensions like "broken link checker" and I see so many broken links but when I click on those links, they aren't actually broken. Can anyone suggest me the best tool?

P.S.: xenu link sleuth is not the tool I am looking for.

    I wrote a free tool that's crawls a entire website looking for broken links. Check my signature, I'd post a direct link but not sure on the rules about that?

    There are many tools to check a broken link. If one tool is not giving you proper results, try checking the same link in other tools.
    I don't know which tools you have used for checking your broken links.
    So, I am going to name few, which I personally use;
    1)smallseotools
    2)Online Broken Link Checker(broken link check)
