How to sort Google Chrome bookmarks by date?

It isn't possible to sort Chrome bookmarks specifically by date using the same procedure as sorting by name. Chrome, surprisingly doesn't have this feature. Instead, you can download an extension such as Recent Bookmarks by Zamtools that organizes Chrome bookmarks in descending order, with the most recently added one near the top. Another extension is Bookmarks by date by Team Aardvark, which, unsurprisingly, allows you to organize your bookmarks by date.
