Why is it assumed that more weight = more strength?

I dont know if it is or not thats why im asking.

But it seems to me the amount of weight used has little to do with strength gains.

Ok the back squat is touted as the king of all exercises and for sheer overall size and strength gains it may well be.

But lets take the front squat theres no way you can lift as much weight with a front squat compared to a back squat but thats because it places most of its stress on the quads and mostly less stress everywhere else.

Well dosnt this make the front squat a superior strength exercise for the quads than a regular squat?

Yes or no and why?
