PIxel hinting and responsive design
It is not very clear to me if you have to do pixel hinting when you are exporting the logo / icon as .svg for responsive websites. Will the object look nice in every size? Or is it better to do the pixel hinting for several sizes and export as a .gif or .png?

SVG = Scalable Vector Graphic. SVG is resolution independent and will look clean at any size. other formats like .jpeg, .tiff, .png. etc., all raster (pixel) based images so yes, those will require pixel hinting for responsive re-sizing for the web.
Basic SVG is supported by all browsers, however it is worth noting that the support specks are not the same across the board. Certain features such as filters, gradients, blending modes, etc. will have varying support from browser to browser. Check out SVG features and browser support specs here... http://caniuse.com/#cats=SVG.

I think SVG is like vector so it should look okay in every size. Someone feel free to correct if I'm wrong.
