Should you silicone baseboards where they join to the floor?

Thinking that it would prevent drafts but wondering if it discolours over time. Like the finished look and it certainly hides the floor vs baseboard imperfections but wondering if it is a good idea or not?

    Use quarter round molding for the finished look.

    There is a special molding for this purpose. It is called shoe molding. it is taller than it is wide, and when installed the narrower side goes down against the floor.
