How to keep bookmarks sorted automatically in alphabetic order WITHOUT having to manually use BookMark Manager!

Will Google fix Chrome so it will automatically sort bookmarks in alphabetic order AS THEY ARE ADDED?

I also wait this function. It almost make mad when I found it's very hard to find my bookmark page.
 
And don't tell me to use search box, that doesn't fix anything. I can't remember anything about my bookmark then I can't search too.
 
 
Please fix this quick.

"bookmarks manager > organize > reorder by title" can't do a things in sub folder. That make it worse.

"reorder by title" is still pretty manual, you have to "reorder by title" every time you add a new bookmark. i believe what we hope for is that everytime you add a new favorite, chrome would just sort out the favorites alphabetically including the subfolders without us having to go to bookmark manager, and click this, and that.
 
it isnt only chrome, but how come most browsers (except for opera), dont sort bookmarks automatically ? users have tens of favorites and sorting them automatically is a must. other than the above, here're what we hope :
1. automatic sorting everytime you add a bookmark or add a bookmark folder + subfolders (above)
2. options to automatically sort bookmarks and bookmark-folders on the bookmark bar from left to right. and even slightly more advanced, divide the bookmark bar into sort of 2 areas, 1 for bookmarks and 1 for bookmark folders, and of course an option for each area to automatically sort.

1) Click on the wrench icon (top right-hand corner)
2) Click on "Bookmark manager" (seventh item in the drop-down menu) - your "Bookmark Manager" page will now open in a NEW tab
3) In the left-hand side scroll bar click on ANY item.
4) On the turquoise bar (about a third down the screen, just below the blue box with the star) click on "Organize"
5) Click on "Reorder by title" (third item from bottom) - your bookmarks are immediately rearranged in alphabetical order
 
You have to do this each time you add a bookmark. Chrome does NOT have an option to automatically sort your bookmarks by alphabetical order.

Wisdom of Josh is really wise: Thanks, Josh! My Bookmarks are now alphabetized in Chrome (on Mac OS) :-).

It did not answer the question "How to KEEP them sorted automatically. The original question uses the term AUTOMATIC, meaning "ALWAYS".

Perfect! Thanks Josh.
I also found a lot of duplicate Bookmarks (imported from Firefox) and simply went through deleting the second copy.
