Data at the root level is invalid. Line 1, position 1. Sharepoint

Got this error while opening a sharepoint site.

Changing custom error to Off it showed  the following error

Line 1:  <browsers>
Line 2:      <browser id="Safari2" parentID="Safari1Plus">
Line 3:          <controlAdapters>

Data at the root level is invalid. Line 1, position 1.

Deleted  the _vti_cnf folder of /App_Browsers/ of the site and everything was back to normal!!!
