A shopping cart without any tables raises a red flag for me. I just cannot imagine a shopping cart without any tabular data! I hope they didn't throw out the baby with the bathwater, misguidedly thinking that "tables are bad" - as many do.

They're not - tables are perfect for tabular data (if done properly) because that's what they're designed for; if you use just divs for the same data you lose a lot of semantics and accessibility.
