Pasting from one of my previous posts:

Valve always seems to like to make it hard to see the complete list of games on sale (in this event its 3000+) since they screw around with the front page during the sale event. Here's everything on sale sorted by metacritic score (valve basically hides this link from front page for some reason when the events go on, I got smart this time around and bookmarked it before the sale started)
steam list

Just put all the games you want in your Steam wishlist and you can just browse that list to see which ones are on sale.
Yeah but sometimes I miss things, and other times I see a game thats $1 and I decide to get it even if its not already in my wishlist.

Another thing, I wish steam made it easier to tell if you own all DLC for a game or are missing some. Like with all that new BL2 dlc, it gets very tedious to have to add all DLC to cart to see which I already have, then remove one at a time (WTF is my remove all from cart button valve?). And then there's the DLC that doesn't say previously owned, until you go to buy it, then it says at the last step "oh yeah you already own this suckah".
What I'd like is a little note next to each DLC on the main game store page with the list that says "owned" or some such. Then I could immediately see which I'm missing and if its on sale.

Maybe valve will hire a GUI expert sometime who thinks its fun and interesting to work on the steam GUI, rather than wheeling his desk over to work on something like TF2 just for the huge bonuses that amount to more than their salary (I don't know specifically what games offer those bonuses, but given the amount of stuff that comes out of TF2 that would be my guess).
