What are WIDGET files and how to open them

What is a WIDGET file?
A .WIDGET file is a Yahoo! Widget file.
A widget is a small application that enables users to keep the tools they use the most directly on their desktop or attach the tool to a browser or other application. Widget applications can include clocks, calculators, calendars, news tickers, and other convenient tools.
The .widget file extension is primarily used by the Yahoo! Widget Engine (previously known as Konfabulator). To install the .widget files on a computer desktop, the user must first download the Yahoo! Widget Engine. Once the engine is installed, the user can select the widgets they prefer and install them onto their system.
