You should try BioEdit. It allows to transform any fasta file into a local
database that can be search by local blast from within BioEdit. It is very
handy, and the author (Tom Tahall) is very responsive to any (maybe not any
but many!) suggestion for imrovement or new features.
BioEdit has many more nice features, sort of a swiss knife for seqs...
