It will be more comfortable and it will also put the weight in a better position so you won't feel like the weight is pushing you forward. As to the difference between front squats and back squats, front squats put the tension on the quads and back squats will put the tension more on the whole posterior chain ( quads, hamstrings and lower back). I hope this helps.
