Getting Started 2.1 How do I start ChatZilla?
You can also start the browser with the -chat command line option. This will launch ChatZilla instead of a browser front end. You can type an IRC URL in the URL bar. Type just irc: to launch ChatZilla and connect to your default channels. Of course, you can use any IRC URL to start ChatZilla and make it connect to the specified location, however, the default channels will not be joined for anything other than irc:.
