Is there a tool to monitor or discover 404's or broken links online?

Google Webmaster 404 tool is a bit slow.

I'd like to discover the 404's before Google Webmaster does.

Edit: I use linux and i'm looking for online tools for 404 discovery.

Xenu's Link Sleuth works very well and is free. The website looks crappy, but the software works well. :)

Make a customized 404 page and insert the tracking code for Google Analytics. You can then track what kind of address is being typed by visitors who get 404.
