I don't download from IRC and I don't think I have ever seen a torrent for manga before.
If the scanlators don't have their own personal online reader, I'll look elsewhere. If they do have their own though, I will use it every time. I find them a lot faster.

Ideally, I read from the scanlator's online reader (if they have one). If not, I go to whatever link is posted on their site to read or Batoto.

I also borrow from a certain friend a lot... dead

~~
Generally, I download from the scanlators website/forum, if the link isn't working anymore I move to irc, torrent or another website, then I move onto the team's online reader or Batoto. I read on a different OR site only if there's no other option, and even then, I'd probably try a automatic manga downloader first.
Exceptions:
Webtoons - I always read them online in a long-strip mode.
Series by teams that provide an OR option only and whose reader doesn't preload pages - I use automatic manga DLer or other source of downloading the chapter.
