Around six or seven years ago, the word "web designer" fell out of favor and was replaced by "interaction design" or "UX design."

Some of their useful lessons notwithstanding however, I infinitely prefer to think of UX Design in terms of usability which is beautifully defined in Don’t Make Me Think by Steve Krug.
