Software for managing BLAST results?

I use GeneStudio Pro's SeqVerter component (sorry, Windows only) for
managing my BLAST searches.  The program retrieves and stores the
searches as xml files.  The very neat "BLAST results browser" allows
browsing the results in both the "Classical" view and in a form-based
view.  In this second browser, you may not only view the details of
each hit, but also select sequences for download.  Although the
Alignment editor and the Contig editor will stop working after 60 days
unless you purchase a license (it's relatively inexpensive in
comparison to Sequencher, Vector NTI, and Lasergene), the SeqVerter
component of GeneStudio is free.

By the way, when searches are submitted, they are cached on the BLAST
server and may be retrieved up to three days after the search (I
think).
