Google new home page (A/B testing I think)

I happened to hit a Google A/B testing page from UK today.

They seem to be loading just the Google logo and the search bar first. Then once you move your mouse onto the page, the top header and footers appear. Some javascript funkiness to a simple page. ~Why?

Also if you notice, the "Search" and "I'm feeling lucky" buttons have disappeared.

The live search suggestions work from the search bar still.

I'm feeling this may be one of the new Google home pages we may be seeing in the near future.
