I'd consider it moderately portable.

Among Open Source software, I'd consider the following highly portable: Firefox, Chromium, LibreOffice, Thunderbird, Claws-Mail, Scribus, Inkscape, Gimp, Krita, VLC, QT(!) and who knows how many others that run on Unix-like systems *and* on Windows.

And among closed source software, Chrome is obviously highly portable (by Google), and Acrobat Reader and Flash (RIP) are highly portable (by Adobe).

P.S. I am not a fan of Windows, but it is widespread, and many people even use it for Internet servers.
