Is there a tool that can take a URL, scan the page, and identify dead links?

If a Chrome extension exists, that's a plus.

Sure.  https://www.experts-exchange.com/articles/2300/Outlook-continually-prompting-for-username-and-password.html
This page has dead links or links that have redirections.  Instead of manually clicking every link, is there a tool that can scan the page and spit out the dead links so I know which ones to go try and fix?
