No, no, no, no, no. This design is clutter-ific. The eye doesn't know where to go, plus the site has lost its personality, especially with the descriptions truncated and buried on "page 2."
This design looks as cheap and gimmicky as every other deal-of-the-day site out there.
The auto-scrolling "discuss this deal" is utterly useless, unless you sit and wait for it to scroll, whereas the previous LIST of quotes was useful AT A GLANCE.
The Woot Plus is too prominently featured and distracts from the primary deal.
Worse, the cutesy new font (reminiscent of the gawdawful Comic Sans) is used WAY too liberally, to the point of distraction.
This is Web 2.0 for the sake of Web 2.0. It's been designed for the designer's own pleasure, and to drive more sales, but definitely NOT for a better user experience.
