It's not a widget per say.  It is a framework of css and javascript to make sites responsive.  At the core is a css grid (the term you are looking for).  They are using bootstrap2 but the newest version is 3 http://getbootstrap.com/

The grid is explained here http://getbootstrap.com/css/#grid and some sample pages http://getbootstrap.com/getting-started/#examples (click on one and view source).

But the basic way it works is to create multiple containers (rows) with child divs as collapsable columns.

The sample below will be 2 columns on a small screen and collapse to 2 rows on an extra small screen.
<div class="row">
    <div class="col-xs-12 col-sm-6">Stuff</div>
    <div class="col-xs-12 col-sm-6">Stuff</div>
</div>

Open in new window

The xs, sm, md, lg sizes are determined by their media queries found in the link I have above.
/* Extra small devices (phones, less than 768px) */
/* No media query since this is the default in Bootstrap */

/* Small devices (tablets, 768px and up) */
@media (min-width: @screen-sm-min) { ... }

/* Medium devices (desktops, 992px and up) */
@media (min-width: @screen-md-min) { ... }

/* Large devices (large desktops, 1200px and up) */
@media (min-width: @screen-lg-min) { ... }

In order to use this, you would simply need to add the bootsrap css and js files to your page and from there, utilize the classes of rows and columns.

If you want to make columns without adding all that framework just for that one spot you can do something simple like this.  
http://jsbin.com/wonayino/1/edit?html,output
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
  <style>
    .row{width:100%;}
    .col_left{float:left;width:30%;background-color:red;}
    .col_right{float:left;width:70%;background-color:purple}
    </style>
  <meta charset="utf-8">
  <title>JS Bin</title>
</head>
<body>
<div class="row">
    <div class="col_left">Stuff</div>
    <div class="col_right">Stuff</div>
</div>
</body>
</html>
