Description

To remove a widget you must to drag it and drop in the left widget list area, or to click the 'Delete' link after opening the widget... It would be great to add a close button in the right or left of the Title.

The chances of accidentally hitting a link in the title of the widget is too great, given that those bars are currently dragged and dropped across the available widgets area, inactive widgets area, and all registered sidebars; and that the title of the widget is already trying to show the title of the widget, which are not always short strings.

Having a specific, clear flow to removing a widget -- you have to expand it, then you have to click a link -- is much less prone to error and bad clicks.
