The newest image at this time of writing (CrunchBang 10 "Statler" r20110207) has chromium-browser set as the default browser. Even after you install iceweasel and run
sudo update-alternatives --config x-www-browser
xchat still opens links in chromium-browser. I suspect that xchat uses xdg-open to decide which browser to use, and there are several keys that need to be changed in the xdg database in order to make sure all URLs will be opened in that browser. That's why I didn't bother! Just open xchat, go to settings-->advanced-->URL handlers...add a new entry called "Iceweasel" (or whatever you prefer) and in the command blank put
exec /usr/bin/iceweasel %s

Actually run the following command in terminal: exo-preferred-applications
Select other from list (not chromium) and type /usr/bin/iceweasel "%s"
Click closed && fixed! You may now open Web-Pages from xChat with iceweasel as the default browser.
N.B: You can also set your default mail client from there too!

~My mind works like lightning. One brilliant flash and it's gone.
i use Opera and set it as default browser in xfce settings. xchat opens up Opera for links from xchat with no probs. I did remove chromium after installing Opera.
