    Ive been using xenu link sleuth a bit recently and its a great free tool.

    But it could do with proxy support to stop it getting blocked by websites if too many threads hit at same time.
    Plus i found quite a few sites that outright block it anyway but you can solve that by hex editing the User Agent it uses ;)

    So is there something similar to xenu out there that support proxys? paid or otherwise?

    thats good but it can only do one url at a time. You can load a list of urls into xenu and it will run multi threaded.

    Hello,
    you can use Screaming Frog - you will have to pay but its the best thing for its cheap price. it can do a lot of other things as well

    you can change the user agent with screamingfrog. I've never been blocked by a site using it.

    tb303, you could try webmeup.com, it's an online tool, though. I know that it lets you create multiple projects, but not sure how many you can run at a time. Alternatively, you could add extra sites as your competitors to have more URLs analyzed simultaneously.
