Works on Google Search and Google Images. Best suited for styles that use background images.
The Google Bar, Logo, Search Bar, buttons and footer links are invisible until hovered over (with transition).
So you have an unobstructed view of the background image.
Everything is still there when you need it.

More info
The idea for this style is to use it along with another style for Google already installed. I've tested it with several styles.
It works straight out of the box with a few of them. As for the others, the logo doesn't appear - circa 2013.
If you're using one of the styles where the logo doesn't appear with this style "as is" you'll need to uncomment the logo in the CSS of this style to enable it.
And if this logo doesn't suit copy/paste the logo from the other style you're using into this style.

My personal setup is -
1. One of the more popular Google styles that doesn't have a background image, and I comment out it's logo.
2. A separate style (personal style) with multiple backgrounds to choose from.
3. And this style (logo enabled).

19June2015 - Google changes.

05Oct2013 - Added another optional logo (538w x 190h).

You should to add comment and rate the style.
