    A very good question. I would love to do this, but I don't think it is possible.

    I just looked, you can do folders in Dolphin HD bookmarks
    Open bookmarks
    Quick Access (bottom left)
    Bookmarks (QA popup)
    Menu key
    New Folder


    Have you tried Dolphin for Pad?

    You can add folders in bookmarks:
    Open bookmarks
    Touch Bookmarks at the very top (opens settings)
    New Folder in upper right hand corner

    It's amazing how you can look at something and not see it. :)

    I see that the folders are automatically sorted into alphabetical order, but can the bookmarks also be sorted automatically?

    Is there anyway to add a folder of bookmarks to the homescreen? For some reason I believe that Honeycomb does not support drag and drop homescreen folders for apps and bookmarks.

    At the risk of going off topic, is there a way of converting bookmarks from various browsers to generic ones, capable of being opened by any browser?

    I didn't see a way to do it. You can move them up and down in the settings menu, but there's no automatic sorting.
    But there is an app for that: Bookmark Sort & Backup

    There is an Add-on in Dolphin for a widget of favorite bookmarks:
    Bookmarks Widget

    Or...You could always download any number of widget / apps to get bookmark folders:
    Apps Organizer

    There are any number of bookmark apps in the Market. I'll let you sift thru them:
    Bookmark backups

    ---
    PS - Cool little trick in Dolphin for Pad. Swipe 3 fingers to switch between tabs. Right to left just switches, left to right has a "cube" animation.

    I really think you deserve another 'thank you'. There's a lot of useful information there.

    Actually, I have a problem with these. I have my bookmarks in either the bookmark bar or in folders in Dolphin for Pad. All the generic apps seem only to be able to take bookmarks from the generic browser, and the Dolphin app only brings up a sort of help page. It isn't in the app area, so I can't launch it.

    I haven't tried any of the apps so I'm no help there, but the Dolphin app is actually a widget. Hit the plus in the upper right corner of your homescreen, select widgets, side scroll until you find the Dolphin widget, drag it to an open area on the preview of you homescreen.
