I'd like to know if it's possible to craft a URL that performs a Contacts search – Something akin to typing a name into the search box in the navigation menu. For a non-functional example of what I mean, to search for "joe":
The goal would be to have this URL result in the same page that results when I manually type "joe" into the search box in the navigation menu, and hit "enter".
I'm trying to develop a script in my operating system (at our organization, Mac OS and we all use apple iphones that I can use Workflow to make scripts for) that allows me to select text, like "joe", right-click it to open a menu, select the script that I've titled "CiviCRM Lookup", and then a browser window opens, and enters a url that includes "joe". I can do all the above, except figure out what kind of URL would execute such a search in CiviCRM!
I'm using Civi 4.6.2 and Drupal 7.
