How to download a Magento extension directly

Note: This post is written for Magento version 1.x.x. This post does not target Magento versions 2.x.x.

Below are some easy ways by which we can download Magento extension directly (without Magento Connect Manager):{PACKAGE NAME}/{VERSION}/{PACKAGE NAME}-{VERSION}.tgz

where {PACKAGE NAME} can be found from extension's key's last part and {VERSION} can be found under release notes tab on extension's page.

For example, you want to download the "Order Delivery Date" module as TGZ (.tar.gz) archive from Magento Connect.

1. Open Magento Connect page of the module:

Please try above ways and let me know if you find any trouble.
