A web-based IRC client for web browsers are used to launch irc:// mime-types, example irc://chat.freenode.net/fsf.

Mibbit is setup by default on Firefox but is unfortunately proprietary, so it has been removed (or disabled) in IceCat (and Abrowser), so we need a free replacement program it.

Here's some candidates (the LibreJS issue must be fixed first):

Their nonfree JS has been issued in: https://directory.fsf.org/wiki/Free_Software_Directory:Free_software_evaluation#IRC_clients
