There must be some way, because that's basically what Berry Bloglines is. There is a download for it but all it is is an icon that takes you to a special website.

the Bookmarks list has an auto-sort feature akin to the Address Book.

begin typing out the name of a bookmark and you will see a pruned list. aside from tapping being more friendly than scrolling (in general) it will at least shorten the height of your scroll.

also, on 71XXn devices, you can press the convenience key (if still assigned to launch the Browser) to get to the Bookmarks faster than wheelin' in.

With 4.1 you can make the website your homepage then set it to launch your homepage instead of bookmarks.
