Google Testing Hiding Top Black Bar

Google Black Bar DesignTecho-Net discovered yet a new Google user interface, this one is with the Google black bar at the top of the pages.

Google introduced this black bar in June 2011, tested using a different method, a drop down black bar and went back to it. Some people still hate it.

So how do you remove it? Right now if you go to Google via http://www.google.com/?esrch=Agad::Public, notice the ?esrch=Agad::Public part, it will turn off the black bar and maybe some other features.

Here is a picture with the black bar on and off:

Google Black Bar Off

A bit refreshing, don't you think?

I don't really care how google does its top nav bar, but I did notice that you get different results with that extra bit of code in the url, so does that mean your not seeing the "true SERPs"? Just a little something to check into before checking your keyword positions etc :)

I am getting the weirdest SERPs with that URL for SEO. Including images towards people in my circles from G+. results from around the world and the majority of the articles are not just popular SEO blogs from the industry but interior beginner guide posts! Thanks Google ha

I hate it because it seems to be malfunctioning, and my entire page goes black for 5-10 seconds. This also occurs whenever there is a forced refresh. When I log out of google+ then the pages view normally.
