There are two methods for linking directly to an IRC Channel.

Direct to Mibbit Client

IRC:// ULRs

This standard is actually used in links. For instance, the Mozilla developer wiki gives links that might be useful. For Mibbit, it is implemented by placing the URL http://mibbit.com/?server=<SERVER>&channel=<CHANNEL> in the address bar or placing IRC://irc.server.net/channel in as a link. It is simple in and of itself, and while there are other parts, they have yet to be used in a non-testing manner. If the person makes Mibbit their default IRC Client in Firefox, any IRC:// link on the web goes to Mibbit. Chatzilla overwrites this without a few specific preferences, and other clients can be made to open the links, if they support IRC:// links. Thus, the IRC:// method is preferred over others.
