I don't hear any noise from my front brakes coming to normal stop as I release the brake at about 5 - 10 kph and stop with the rear (assuming level ground).
So basically I stop with equal 'feeling' of pressure on both brakes in the stopping process say at traffic lights. No front end dive wanted, just smooth stopping.
General breaking is also with both front and rear brakes in action with more emphasis on the front end. So when I press the front, it's usually a firm pressure, intended to brake to a stop, and use the rear to trim the bike before entering a turn.
I try not to glaze the pads in running in. I pick quiet down hill, put the brakes on quite firmly from 60 to 10 kph about 6 times over a first trip ride, and the brakes are always fine after that, having done this on my many many bikes.
