So, a widget is an active icon.

The word means several things but within the web development community, it is a piece of self-enclosed code that can be embedded into a website or program to perform a specific function. Many websites take advantage of this type of code to increase their functionality and customization.

For example, you can put a mortgage widget on your web site so people can use it to estimate a mortgage payment.

Hope this helps.
