Is there a way to sort answers based on date in Quora? By default there is no such option to sort.
No, not yet.
For more information you can visit these links:
Though it is late, Quora Quick Sort is a Chrome extension that enables you to sort by date. It also allows you to sort by upvotes, views, and comments.
For disclosure, I am the author of this plugin. I created this plugin due to facing the same issues as the poster when using Quora.
Update: The extension has been taken down by Google due to complaints from Quora for trade mark issues.
