Your Annual Checkup


You could set up a batch file that opens this page every January 1. That way, you wouldn’t have to remember to come back here for the following annual checkup items.

Once you’re here, you can open many links at once with an add-on like SnapLinks Plus or Multi Links Plus. (Those links are for Firefox, but I think those or similar add-ons are also available in Chrome.)

You don’t have to do them all. Try a few from each category. You might keep your scores to compare against previous years. For instance, you could print the web pages as PDFs using a free PDF printer.
