I might try it if for no other reason that it would be awesome if it was good. I don't really need fancy graphics. The screenshots look decent enough to me. It looks like a pretty low rent operation in general though. I'll at least keep an eye on it. I'd be more inclined to checking it out if it had trading and that sort of stuff space-sim stuff.

Just a browser based MMO version of Freelancer would be awesome. Someone ought to do that. Even without making all that many changes it would be a pretty good candidate. It's light on resources, already works reasonably well with almost a couple hundred players on a desktop server and a cable internet connection, and it has pretty simple pick-up-and-play type gameplay. The mechanics and player management would need work, but it's not so far out there.
