What does it mean by relative anion stability?

when looking at relative anion stability, you are trying to determine which had stronger induction qualities. in other words which one does a better job at pulling a negative charge away.

does this have to do with determining the strength of the acid

Yes, if the inductive effect withdraws electron density, say from an OH- bond, the acidity of the compound will increase.

Relative anion stability is described by the orbital in which the electrons are found in, depending on how much energy that orbital contains, if the orbital contains less energy the more stable the anion will be.
