It is important to keep in mind that this version is limited to processing one page, yet you can easily choose the HTML validation (e.g. HTML3.2, ISO/IEC, HTML 5.1, XHTML5 etc.) you want to use from a drop-down menu.
In addition to that, you can choose the accessibility validation type (e.g. US Section 508, WCAG 2.0 A etc.) and use a spell checker for various languages, such as French, British English, Spanish and German.
It is possible to report all problems or only errors, as well as ignore warnings and open the results in a new tab in your default web browser. You can save or reset all parameters with just a click of the button and render the program non-obtrusive, by simply sending it to the system tray when it is not needed.
In conclusion, Total Validator Basic is a pretty efficient piece of software when it comes to checking websites for broken links.
