    I'm used to my Evo, which I guess as part of HTC's Sense gives me the ability to make folders on a homescreen, which I usually drop bookmarks in ("Work" folder, "Home" folder). I don't see this in Xoom- does anyone know of an application which would give somewhat the same functionality?

    Thanks. I've seen the stock bookmark widget, but I don't use Chrome on the desktop though.

    Try folder organizer. It lets you create folders for apps, contacts, and bookmarks

    Thanks! That looks exactly like what I was looking for. Unfortunately can't find it in the market on my Xoom, and when I go the web route to 'send to' I see my Evo as an option but not my Xoom. Hopefully the dev is working on a Honeycomb version.

    Huge initial complaint. How can there not be folder support by default? It makes no sense. I'm buying folder organizer but I'm shocked this isn't a standard feature. A bit mind boggling.

    Folder organizer is up on the market now, and yes the developer has fixed some of the formatting issues. I currently have the 4x4 widget on my home screen and it's awesome!

    I do wish there was an easy way to costomize the bookmarks on the xoom itself without having to use Chrome. Has anyone found a way?

    I agree, but has Google put any sort of folder functionality on any of it's phones (that don't have manufacturer UI's)?
