Other synthetic oils
After a bunch of research I use Marvel Mystery Oil.

Evidently a lot of lubes work well, so I wonder if we are not too focused on a particular lube that the manufacturer claims is a miracle lube.
The first lube I ever used was 3 in 1 machine oil. Then in the military I used the mil lubes. Subsequently, I have used the miracle lubes, but never found them better than anything else. I finally settled on Mobile 1, although I have a bottle of FP10, and will also use it till it is gone.
I stopped using grease on the rails several years ago, and find that with oil I get less gunk to clean.
If you get a malfunction it will not be because you used or did not use a certain lubricant. Clean the gun well, and use what you have.
EEZOX for cleaning and lubricating.
I answered grease, though technically that's not the entire answer. I use a combination cleaner and dry lubricant (formerly Prolix, now Gunzilla) to clean the whole gun, then I use Brian Enos's Slide Glide on the rails and a couple of other contact points...

CLP - If it's a particularly hot day and I'll be outside for most of it, grease gets the nod. It doesn't run when it's hot.
I use a 1911, which was designed back in an era of motor oil, axle grease, 3-in-1 oil, and candle was as being some of the only common lubes around. It runs on all of the lubes I've ever tried. My preference is partially based off of performance, as all of my lubes have high shear strengths - however, my biggest reasoning is ease of application. How it stays in place, how well it flows along a crevice, and if it has a pin point applicator or not.
A little Superglue along the slide rails...
Tightens things up tremendously.
I still like machine oil for most applications.
Weapon Shield after getting a sample about a year and a half ago. Threw away everything else. Makes everything feel smoother, easier. Everything cleans much easier and faster. Better protectant than silicon. NO stink. Non toxic. I was thinking about trying Gunzilla, but I just got a sixteen oz. bottle of WS and it goes a loooong way.
I wasn't sure how to vote because I don't know what my lubes are made from...
