Portability is an aspect of functionality that centers around how "portable" something is[1].

What is portability?

In terms of wikis, something is portable if it works well when switching between desktop browser and mobile browser or app contexts. Currently, portability is focused around presentation of templates, especially infobox templates (via Portable Infoboxes), but will expand as more functionality is added to the FANDOM arsenal.
