I'm often making "slots" in wood, sometimes it is for jigs, but other times it is in the construction of a piece of furniture or some other woodworking accessory. I can often cut these on my router, but it requires a bit more work because I often need to set up a temporary fence either on my existing router table, of a temporary fence that consists of a straight board clamped to the wood I am cutting. For me, it's almost always faster to cut slots in wood using my table saw, and simply make 2 cuts the remove the inner core and now I have a perfectly straight slot.

I find that many times I need to make more than one slot, especially if I am making jigs so it's pretty common for me to need to move the table saw fence back and forth, depending on the cuts ...
