Best Brand of Paint for Porch Floor?

We need to repaint the porch floor. What is the best brand and type of paint to use?
Especially, can someone compare porch paints made by Sherwin-Williams, Benjamin Moore, and Cabot?

Thank you!

My preference is for epoxies or oil-based enamel floor paints from a major brand name. The water based porch paints I've used don't hold up well at all even with good prepwork and a major brand name paint. If you use either of these, plan to toss the equipment out when finished- it can be cleaned with the proper solvent but isn't really worth the cost or hassle.

My preference is solid deck stain, while it needs re done a liitle more offten it doesn't chip or peal. Silken is my first choice.
