    Is there a function/command that will make Safari alphabetize your favorites by their Bookmark Name that you've added to the Collections? I manually do it, but it's time consuming. Like the Sort by Name function in windows?

    -Thanks

    I don't think there's a feature for that by default, but if I remember correctly, installing the Saft plugin adds that feature.

    I was thinking I wanted to do the same thing only the other day.

    Maybe we should lobby Apple.

    Drag them all out to a separate folder and then drag them back in.

    desksnap, thanks. I'm going to give this a try a little later tonight. Let you guys know how it works, much easier and cheaper from what it sounds like to me.

    Everyone else, thanks for your suggestions.

    Sortosaurus alphabetizes bookmarks in a second. Developer's description: "a small command line utility to sort bookmarks for the Safari web browser."
    I put in in the scripts menu for easy access. Available here:

    Eusebius, thanks, that's awesome. I didn't get around to the method of dragging out to replace in order. Great script, and once again thank you everyone that contributed your ideas.
