"chan," usually used in the plural as "chans," can refer to the large array of English-language websites that were inspired by the japanese imageboard 2channel. The largest and most influential of the "chans" is the popular website 4chan, although there are many other similar websites such as 7chan, 420chan, wakachan, iichan, not4chan, gurochan, fchan, sidechan, renchan, and so on and so on.
Their characteristic features are anonymous posting, content being quickly deleted once it becomes old, "sage"-ing, and an idiosyncratic and strange culture.
"Yeah, I browse the chans a lot...4chan mostly, but gurochan when I need some fapping material."
