Widget is a term most used in the case of web sites deployed using the WordPress platform. WordPress widgets are used to add content and features to page and post sidebars, footers, and using special techniques, just about anywhere else, including the main content areas and headers. Examples include the default widgets that come with WordPress, e.g., available post categories, tag clouds, navigation, search, etc. The number and type of available widgets can be extended with the addition of specialized WordPress plugin modules, e.g., those that allow the addition and display of upcoming events, image galleries, etc.
