Currently we have one column of widgets if the browser size is below 1250px and 2 columns if is 1250px or more...

Maybe if browser size if bigger than 1700px to show 3 columns
if more than 2200px - 4 columns... or something like that

Currently WordPress has, in this section, the following structure

. liquid-widget-left (left sidebar where the widgets appear available)

. liquid-widget-right (right sidebar areas where the widgets appear)
. sidebars-column-1 (first column areas with widgets)
. sidebars-column-2 (second column areas with widgets)

WordPress widgets areas divided equally among the columns. Sidebars-and column-1. Sidebars-column-2.

What you're proposing is that instead of dividing the areas they are positioned side by side? I do not think is a good solution, since only one of the areas appear open, we would be with an empty space at the bottom, it is more feasible to position the fields one below the other, as it is currently.

Whatever is done (or not done) here, it would be good to address how the widths of the widget area containers grow/shrink when the window is resized. Wide widget controls try to force themselves wider than the containing widget area container by setting a negative margin, but this causes problems when the container is not always the same width. The result is that the wide widget can have different dimensions than are specified when the widget is registered.

The widgets screen was replaced in 5.8 and the legacy widgets screen placed in maintenance mode. As this is an enhancement, I'm going to close the ticket off.
