tldr; There needs to be more than one way to order a group of bookmarks.

Currently the bookmarks in the native browser are shown as icons in a grid with the name of the bookmark below the icon truncated to 10-14 characters.

It would be nice to have different viewing options for the bookmarks, e.g. see the bookmarks as a plain list (the name of the bookmark in one row so you can see the whole text), or with icons (as now) but as a list not as a grid (name of the bookmark next to the icon in one row).

I wish I could vote more than once on this. The updated browser is great, however, the new bookmarks view is almost unusable for me. I have several similar links which I now must "edit" to see which one is which. The previous list view was not only compact, but also a lot more helpful than the current one.

And some way to organize (folders, sort order, etc.) would be also very much appreciated.

@Drekkarian: Yes, you need to edit the bookmark text in a lot of cases if you want to have distinguishable texts. But also on Desktop or iPad I regularly edit the bookmark to my liking.

You could also change the favicon/thumbnail manually as discribed in my answer to the question Web bookmark icons in Launcher.

I would like to have a second edit option for the favicon in the long press context menu of a bookmark to simplify the process.

@axaq Thanks for the tip. I agree with you. The Edit Favorite long press context menu option could also allow choosing the favicon.

I don't think reverting to an old state is a good idea, would be great to make it a customizable option with a way to organize bookmarks. As I've told before, many of us have dosens of bookmarks, on my laptop I store a couple of hundreds. It's no matter list or grid — if you can't organize all this pile.
