 > - Why are HTML, Text, and RSS widgets wide?

 I assume the Text widget is wide in order to give more room to edit. The
 Custom HTML widget is wide because the Text widget was wide, as I recall.
 I don't know about the RSS widget's reason.

 The Text widget has been wide since it was introduced in 2.2 (#4169), as
 far as I can tell:

 * https://github.com/WordPress/wordpress-
 * https://github.com/WordPress/wordpress-

 The [https://wordpress.org/plugins/widgets/ Widgets feature plugin] that
 was merged apparently had wide Text widget, so that is why it persisted.
 The first feature plugin commit had a `widget_text_register()` which
 included the wide widget:

 register_widget_control($name, $i <= $number ? 'widget_text_control' : /*
 unregister */ '', 460, 350, $i);
