An acid is a relatively strong acid if its resulting anion is stable. An anion with resonance is stable, and so its acid can be considered to be a strong acid relative to other acids. However, it does not mean that the acid is necessarily a "strong acid". The anion of sulfuric acid is stable because of resonance, and sulfuric acid is known to be a strong acid. However, acetic acid's anion is stable because of resonance, but it is known to be a weak acid: it is a strong acid compare to other weak acids.
