Strokes appearing on my logo in the browser when no stroke colour has been set on the object in Illustrator

First of all please forgive my lack of experience in illustrator, I've just started out and am therefore a complete novice in design.

I've just created my logo and saved and exported it as an SVG. It appears how I want it in Illustrator with just colour fills and no strokes, but in the browser a light stroke colour is being applied to each path. I used the polygon tool to create the octagon shape and then used the line segment tool to create the different sections. I then used the live paint bucket tool to fill in the different shapes with different shades. Anyone know what I've done wrong here? Here is the logo with the unwanted path stroke colours:

Hi Ben, there could be a problem with SVG exporting, try to save the logo as a PNG file. Also, try to highlight the logo in illustrator and click unite button on pathfinder panel.
