New Driveway, How Best to Seal It

The old asphalt driveway was finally given the heave-ho. In its place is a freshly poured concrete driveway, done about two weeks ago. I've been reading online about various approaches to sealing and protecting it, and as expected there are conflicting opinions and advice. I figured I'd come here to ask those in the know.
The location is south Florida. The concrete is 5" thick and has some color added to it. What should I be using to protect it and keep it looking good for the foreseeable future? Thank you.

Did you ask your concrete guy? As you know colors are bad to fade in fla. A concrete place would probably have or recommend a better sealer than a big box would.
