You could click on their tags... Everything else depends on your
wmiirc. You might use hotkeys for moving left and right through the
tag bar, hotkeys for going to the Nth tag, or hotkeys for going to the
first tag starting with a particular letter. You're really only
limited by your creativity here, and I believe that all of these are
available in the snippets section of the wmii site (under misc).
