Pretty neat feature in Google Maps Desktop, where you can view typical traffic by day of the week and time.

Pretty neat! Slowly blurring the lines between Waze and Google Maps...

ETA: After reading how old the article is, I have a minute left to Modify or Delete this, I'm debating which one I should do...

So the feature has been available for years before 2012 according to the article's date.
