Customize your own background for google basic search, suitable for use as your home page. Extraneous elements are hidden or auto-hidden. Works in Firefox and Chrome. Should work for most international sites - let me know of problems.

Due to frequent Google changes the top bar is completely auto-hidden for now - I may leave it that way. Hover over the top right area to see it, but text and icons don't look good.

"Google Instant predictions" must be turned off in your search settings. On the Google home page, click on "Settings", then "Search Settings".

My intention is to only include and international equivalents (not search results, image search, etc.)
