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

Direct to Mibbit Client


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<SERVER>&channel=<CHANNEL> in the address bar or placing IRC:// 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.
