I find that when braking if cornering, back brake is safer, braking while going straight, front brake works better. Like Dirtbike said, the rear brake is totally control, virtually no stopping power. Although you shouldn't just use your front brake and forget about your back otherwise you WILL come off (has happend to me).
So get off your saddle, lean back and a good 'braking power' ration seems to be (back:front) 4:3. Although try not to concentrate about braking too much just remember > Rear Brake = Control
> Front Brake = Power
