      I was unable to open this using Firefox. Chrome works.

      I still feel a downloadable zip file is far better  and it enable a quick browse (think slow wifi in hotels).

      Its also times-out very frequently. Please work on increase this.

      Thank you Devraj for the comment. Download as ZIP functionality is already available for the usecase you mentioned below. On every package specific page, you will see the option to download entire package as a zip.

      Also, the application opens in my Firefox. It is version 26.0.

      On the "time out issue", can you share more details on under which circumestances it appear.

      In order to make sure, I understand the issue completely, can you please send us an email @ . In subject line, mention "SAP Best Practices Explorer". Mention the detail on which version of browser it doesnt work, details of time out issue. Then we look into it.

      Thanks Bijaya for your reply. I found the download icon at the bottom of the page. Its not intuitive enough.


      I am using Firefox 45.4.0.and somehow the BP explorer is not opening.

      I think its the standard Service market place timeout that is impacting the BP explorer as well. I will send you an email with the timeout issue.
